Abstract

The paper reports the historical origins of remote afterloading systems in intracavitary radiotherapy, together with the results and complications of high dose rate brachytherapy in gynecological tumours. High dose rate therapy achieves the same results as low dose rate therapy but has the advantage of making treatment more comfortable for patients.
