Bone-Rad has developed a Brachytherapy Bone Cement that simplifies the treatment of bone tumors, reduces cost, and improves patient QOL.
Bone-Rad's first product, Spine-Rad, will treat vertebral tumors. The current treatment for vertebral tumors is kyphoplasty to strengthen the bone followed by 10-20 visits for external radiation therapy to kill the tumor. Spine-Rad Brachytherapy Bone Cement both strengthens the bone and kills the tumor in one step. External radiation therapy is not required, eliminating the associated side effects and expense, and improving patient QOL.
