Annual incidence of Carcinoma Cervix is around 570,000 worldwide. Carcinoma Cervix is fourth leading cause for cancer death in women worldwide. Global annual incidence of Carcinoma Vagina is around 18,000. In cervical cancer patients clinical outcome has improved with intracavitary Brachytherapy. Most common site treated with Brachytherapy is Carcinoma Cervix as per the survey done by American Brachytherapy Society (ABS). In management of Carcinoma Cervix Brachytherapy plays a crucial role. Intracavitary Brachytherapy (ICBT) is the most commonly used technique. In cases where ICBT is not technically feasible or it may result in suboptimal dose distribution, Interstitial Brachytherapy (ISBT) is recommended. The most common technique for ISBT is perineal template based implant procedure.
