Interesting. The study from UCLA under estimates the cost for High Dose Brachy at UCLA. At least it underestimates the cost my health insurance co. was billed.

From a study at UCLA published in the July 2016 Journal of Cancer:
These costs are for the treatment of low risk cancer:
AS for 5 years $7298
Low dose Brachy $8978
High Dose Brachy $11,448
Robotic Surgery $16.946
Total treatment costs for PC treatments in 2020 projected at $18.5 billion
