Upgraded Needle Cradle, SeeDOS Code Number 90095


For storage and transfer of loaded LDR prostate implant needles

We have upgraded the Needle Cradle, SeeDOS Code 90095, to provide a Needle Guard which is attached to the Needle Cradle. This Needle Guard conveniently flips up and over the Needle Cradle to economize space, and to provide an additional sturdy, sterilized work area. The earlier Needle Cradles with the removable Needle Guard can be upgraded to this new design.

NEW (February 2003) New Brachytherapy source measuring and handling systems pdf

  • ELEVEN horizontal rows - nine rows are sometime inadequate for large prostate volumes. You never run out of rows with difficult cases.

  • Interchangeable templates - easily changed aluminium templates for any ultrasound machine or treatment planning system, starting at 1.0 or 2.0. You only need one box for any current or future treatment plans.
  • Increased shielding - so the signal at 1 meter is less than the NRC specified 1 mR/hr (with 0.35mR seeds).
  • Light weight, stainless steel needle guard slips over needles to prevent accidental bumping of stylets. Guard can be removed and stored if not used.
  • Bottom plate prevents loss of and seeds that may become loose.

Materials - 3/4" front, 3/8" sides. Dimensions (preliminary) 11.5", 11", 14.5", 20 lbs.
