CT or US images are used to delineate the margins of the prostate and the structures sensitive to radiation. Using the information obtained from CT or US images, as well as the radiation distribution around the seeds, physicians can determined the distribution of the radioactive seeds in the prostate [112]. The preplan is then used to implant the seeds while the patient is positioned in approximately the same position as in the preplan. The implantation of the radioactive seeds is typically carried out using TRUS guidance.

A) Coronal view with delineated organs, needles, seeds and isodose curves, (b) sagittal view, (c) transverse view, and (d) surface rendered view showing the organs and needles with seeds. tem of the transducer to the 3-D TRUS image (image calibration), and (2) map the coordinate system of the robot to the transducer (robot calibration). 2) A unique solution exists if, and only if, the sets of points K and L contain at least four noncoplanar points [126]. ru 22 3-D Ultrasound Imaging To calibrate the image, we used a phantom that contained three sets of nylon strings with diameters of 1 mm orthogonally positioned in a Plexiglas box.

Users can evaluate the plan using dose–volume histograms for each organ and make the necessary modifications. Once the needle has been retracted, the actual seed locations are determined or are assumed from the location of the needle, and the new isodose curves are displayed. Once the needle has been retracted, users have the option of modifying the plan according to the real seed locations. 11 shows an example of the use of the preplanning software for planning an oblique trajectory of a needle.
