US Market Report for Prostate Cancer Treatment Devices 2016 - Research and Markets

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "US Market Report for Prostate Cancer Treatment Devices 2016" report to their offering.

The market for cryoablation is a little bit different from other ablations. Of all procedures performed in 2015, half of them originated from capital units that were already installed and the other half came from rentals. As such, the cryoablation models in this chapter are split into rentals (which include disposables), disposables used by an existing installed base and the machines themselves.

When a hospital needs to perform a cryo procedure that does not own the capital equipment, they can have it dropped off (complete with the disposables) for a fee. For hospitals that do not have the funds or lack a sufficient customer base, this arrangement can be desirable.

Internal radiation therapy (RTi), also known as brachytherapy, is a form or RT that puts the radioactive material inside the patient either via a catheter or a needle. In terms of its placement, RTi may be administered as intracavitary or interstitial. In the case of intracavitary, the radioactive material is placed inside a cavity in the body such as in the rectum or uterus; in the case of interstitial, the radioactive material is placed on/near the cancer but not inside a body cavity.

The most common form of brachytherapy involves the placement of seeds inside the body involving differing durations and radioactivity. Each seed is approximately the size and shape of a small grain of rice.
