Palladium-103 Plaque Therapy for Choroidal Melanoma Essential Eye Cancer Podcast

    • Health & Fitness

Learn about why not all eye plaques used for treatment of choroidal melanoma and other intraocular tumors are not equal. Dr. Finger started using palladium-103 seed sources in eye plaques back in 1991.  He recognized that palladium-103 would provide more radiation to choroidal melanomas while reaching fewer normal vital intraocular structures compared to iodine-125 seeds. This difference has translated into better local cancer destruction and better vision retention for his patients.
