In this book a very comprehensive overview is given on the state of the art of interstitial multicatheter APBI by very experienced and prominent representatives of breast brachytherapy. Patient selection criteria, target volume definition from both the pathologist’s and the clinician’s point of view, implant techniques including anaesthesia and patient care, biological and physical aspects, normal-tissue constraints, and also clinical results of APBI studies will be reviewed. Physicians who are interested in interstitial multi-catheter APBI will find this book helpful for the implementation of this treatment technique in their institutions.
