Caption: Prostate cancer radiotherapy surgery. X-ray of radioactive sources (red dots) that have been inserted into a prostate gland to treat cancer. The sources are titanium with radioactive iodine-125. This implantation of radioactive sources is a procedure known as brachytherapy, a form of radiotherapy. The radiation from the radioactive sources kills the cancerous cells.
