Intracavitary therapy by afterloading techniques is the choice of treatment for carcinoma of uterine, cervix. To compare the dosimetry and clinical results it was considered advantageous, if all hospitals in India used identical type of applicators. With this in view a national committee was appointed by the Director, BARC and on the basis of its recommendations a new manual afterloading applicator was designed in collaboration with Isotope Group, BARC (Present BRIT) and Tata Memorial Hospital, Bombay. The design features of the applicator which incorporates I3«SQ»cs sources and the dosimetric aspects are discussed in this paper
