RICHLAND, Wash., Oct. 29, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Isoray, Inc. (NYSE AMERICAN: ISR) announced today that it will demonstrate its latest products at the American Brachytherapy Society’s (ABS) annual prostate brachytherapy workshop. The workshop is scheduled to take place November 1-2 at the Hyatt Regency Denver at Colorado Convention Center in Denver, Colorado.
The workshop’s Co-Chairmen are Dr. Brett W. Cox, Interim Chairman of the Department of Radiation Medicine at Lenox Hill Hospital and Chief of Brachytherapy for Northwell Health, and Dr. Peter J. Rossi, Calaway Young Cancer Center and Valley View Hospital.
According to Co-Chairman Dr. Cox, the two-day education and simulator workshop is key. “This workshop plays a central role in communicating the value of brachytherapy and ensuring its quality delivery. It also makes a substantial contribution in facilitating a more rapid transition from education to practice implementation of brachytherapy.”
Co-Chairman Dr. Rossi commented, “We at ABS are excited to provide this program to teach the next generation of clinicians. We are particularly gratified to have the participation of such a high caliber group of industry experts who will provide important insight as they share their experiences and techniques.”
Isoray CEO Lori Woods noted that ABS is playing a vital role in training physicians at a time when there has been a resurgence in interest in brachytherapy (internal radiation therapy). “We are very pleased to take part in this prestigious forum. Isoray’s participation in the workshop underscores the Company’s leadership and commitment to supporting brachytherapy training and the value we place on increasing the number of physicians who offer brachytherapy to their prostate cancer patients,” she said.
Isoray attendees will have a variety of roles at the ABS workshop. Isoray representatives will be providing consultation and support on available Cesium Blu (Cesium-131) training and community awareness programs on state-of-the-art Cesium Blu treatment and its availability for patients and doctors.
Isoray representatives will also be demonstrating the innovative Blu Build™ real-time Cesium-131 internal radiation therapy delivery system. Blu Build is believed to be the first new delivery system in years designed specifically for prostate internal radiation therapy. The delivery system enables doctors to deliver a high radiation dose to the targeted prostate cancer and limits the impact on the surrounding areas compared to other treatment options. Blu Build is the latest advance in the application of Cesium-131 in treating prostate cancer.
