IsoCord® - Innovative Strand Cutting
IsoCord® seed chains (strands) contain IsoSeed® I-125 seeds and hourglass-shaped spacers in standard seed-spacer configuration, enclosed in a braided monofilament suture. IsoCord® strands are delivered in shielded magazines containing up to 70 seeds.

Good Visibility
IsoCord® is available in two different designs: I25.S17plus and I25.S06. Both sealed source models are visible under X-ray, fluoroscopy, CT, and MR and additionally show good ultrasound visibility.

  • „„IsoSeed® I25.S17plus features a full silver marker and has been designed for visibility under X-ray/fluoroscopic imaging. In addition, it enables MR Imaging and opens new perspectives for postoperative planning.
  • „„IsoSeed® I25.S06 contains a thin gold marker within a ceramic carrier, diminishing artifacts and providing good visibility in CT imaging.


Low Migration Rates

One advantage of strands is their low migration rate. IsoCord® strands are specially designed to reduce the migration rates still further. The structured surface of the braided suture, as well as the unique, hourglass-shaped spacers, provide reliable fixation of the IsoCord® strand in prostate tissue.
