Modern radiotherapy of female breast cancers often employs high dose rate brachytherapy, where a radioactive source is moved inside catheters, implanted in the female breast, according to a prescribed treatment plan. Source localization relative to the patient's anatomy is determined with solenoid sensors whose spatial positions are measured with an electromagnetic tracking system. Precise sensor ...
