brachytherapy term for prostate carcinoma
Subject: brachytherapy term for prostate carcinoma
I'm doing a report on a patient being treated for prostate carcinoma, and a ProSeed implant is being done. The doctor says "needle positioning and total needed calculated dose ______zation were all determined by the radiation oncologist and the physicist and are contained in their separate dictation."
I've been googling in an effort to figure this out, and I tried to find the word by doing a wildcard search on my Rad/Onc electronic reference, but I'm not coming up with it. It almost sounds as if the word begins with an 'f' or 'ph.'.
