Title:
Trans-perineal implantation of radio-opaque treatment verification markers into the prostate: an assessment of procedure related morbidity, patient acceptability and accuracy.

Abstract:
On-line imaging of prostate markers can be used to compensate for errors in radiation delivery. This study assessed the patient acceptability and morbidity associated with the trans-perineal route of implantation. A minority experienced acute pain or bleeding. Placement was accurate in all but one subject. An operator related learning curve exists. Although this is an invasive procedure most patients found it acceptable. Implementation for routine clinical practice is feasible.
