General introduction to Elekta  and  Brachytherapy  solutions.  Special  treatment  facilities and new applicators for optimized dose delivery. Clinical relevance for using the newest innovations in HDR treatment  planning  and  presenting  the  clinical  workflow.  Reasons and benefits by hybrid invers treatment planning in HDR brachytherapy. Dose distribution and in HDR and catheter optimization in interstitial brachytherapy. Solutions for the best dose optimized plan within the shortest time.
