1997], Dr. Maruyama stressed the need for developing small size high activity seed sources and afterloading machines to facilitate clinical trials on the interstitial treatment of brain tumors, sarcomas, and a large variety of tumors. The current NBT treatment in China is implemented via an afterloading system (referred as Neutron Knife) developed by Zurua Science & Technology Co. As mentioned, a total of 18 systems have been deployed. According to the information available on the website of Zurua, each newly loaded source typically contains up to 1 mg of Cf-252 provided from Russia.
