Inferring postimplant dose distribution of salvage permanent prostate implant (PPI) after primary PPI on CT images

Abstract : PURPOSE: To evaluate the dose distribution of additional radioactive seeds implanted during salvage permanent prostate implant (sPPI) after a primary permanent prostate implant (pPPI). METHODS AND MATERIALS: Patients with localized prostate cancer were primarily implanted with iodine-125 seeds and had a dosimetric assessment based on day 30 postimplant CT (CT1). After an average of 6 years, these patients underwent sPPI followed by the same CT-based evaluation of dosimetry (CT2). Radioactive seeds on each CT were detected. The detected primary seeds on CT1 and CT2 were registered and then removed from CT2 referred as a modified CT2 (mCT2). Dosimetry evaluations (D90 and V100) of sPPI were performed with dedicated planning software on CT2 and mCT2. Indeed, prostate volume, D90, and V100 differences between CT2 and either CT1 or mCT2 were calculated, and values were expressed as mean (standard deviation). RESULTS: The mean prostate volume difference between sPPI and pPPI over the 6 patients was 9.85 (7.32) cm3. The average D90 and V100 assessed on CT2 were 486.5 Gy (58.9) and 100.0% (0.0), respectively, whereas it was 161.3 Gy (47.5) and 77.3% (25.2) on mCT2 (p = 0.031 each time). The average D90 the day of sPPI [145.4 Gy (11.2)] was not significantly different from that observed on mCT2 (p = 0.56). CONCLUSION: Postimplant D90 and V100 of sPPI after pPPI can be estimated on CT images after removing the primary seeds. Copyright © 2018 American Brachytherapy Society. Published by Elsevier Inc.
