This will be a prospective, open label, single arm, controlled study, assessing the safety and efficacy of diffusing alpha emitters radiation therapy (DaRT) delivered through radioactive seeds inserted into the tumor.
This approach combines the advantages of local intratumoral irradiation of the tumor, as used in conventional brachytherapy, with the power of the alpha radiation emitting atoms, that will be introduced in quantities considerably lower than radiation therapy already used in patients.
Superficial lesions with histopathological confirmation of malignancy will be treated using DaRT seeds.
Reduction in tumor volume and evaluation the percent of necrotic tissue in the tumor 30-45 days after DaRT seeds insertion (15-30 days after seed removal) will be assessed. Safety will be assessed by the cumulative incidence, worst severity and frequency of adverse events (AEs) observed including the follow-up period.

Experimental: DaRT Seeds
Intratumoral Diffusing alpha-emitters Radiation Therapy (DaRT) Seeds
Device: Device: Radiation: Diffusing Alpha Radiation Emitters Therapy (DaRT)
An intratumoral insertion of a seed(s), loaded with Radium-224, securely fixed in the seeds. The seeds release by recoil into the tumor short-lived alpha-emitting atoms.
- Evaluate the safety of the DaRT treatment [ Time Frame: 5-7 weeks after DaRT seed insertion. ]The study primary objective is to evaluate the safety of the DaRT treatment in terms of incidence of device related Serious Adverse Events (SAE).
- Evaluation the effectiveness of the treatment. [ Time Frame: Tumor volume will be measured during screening, 5 and 30-45 days post DaRT after treatment using CT. ]Evaluation on the effectiveness of the DaRT treatment, in terms of tumor volume reduction.
- Evaluate the effectiveness of the DaRT treatment, in terms of percent of necrotic [ Time Frame: 15-30 days after removal of DaRT seeds. ]Evaluate the effectiveness of the DaRT treatment, in terms of percent of necrotic tissue present in the remaining tumor tissue surgically removed 15-30 days after removal of DaRT seeds.
