Hologic recognizes that you have preferences when it comes to balloon brachytherapy products, so we offer a choice: MammoSite targeted radiation therapy system and Contura multi-lumen balloon catheters. The MammoSite system includes both single and multi-lumen balloon catheters and the Contura system includes two sizes of multi-lumen balloon catheters. Hologic multi-lumen balloon brachytherapy applicators are the only single-insertion APBI technologies that meet or exceed B-39 dosimetric guidelines.1,2 As such, they allow you to easily satisfy the current clinical recommendation that the dose to the skin be maintained at less than 125% of the prescription dose.
