Internal Radiotherapy is divided into three types: Low dose Brachytherapy (Seeds: I-125, Pd-103, Applicators and Afterloaders), High dose brachytherapy (Seeds: Ir-192, Applicators and Afterloaders) and Electronic Brachytherapy.
The device is used for industrial radiography and contains Iridium Ir-192.
Best also manufactures and directly distributes Pd-103, I-125, Ir-192, Au-198 and other isotopes and products for the brachytherapy market.
