German term or phrase: Brustspickung
Die Brust-Spickschablone LL931-01 ist für interstitielle Brachytherapie‧anwendungen bestimmt.
Sie wird zusammen mit Stahlnadeln oder Plastiknadeln für die Brustspickung verwendet.

We have determined that Spickschablone is needle template, might this be a breast needle?

Any help much appreciated
TIA Stephen

breast brachytherapy (seed implantation treatment)
Explanation:
breast brachytherapy
The brachytherapy procedure involves placing some flexible plastic catheters (tiny tubes) into the breast.
http://www.brachytherapy.com/breast-brachy.html

Katheter-Technik.
Eine weitere Technik der umschriebenen Brustbestrahlung ist die so genannte Brachytherapie oder "Spickung" der Brust. Dabei werden Plastikkatheter entweder bei der Operation oder einige Zeit danach in die Brust eingestochen und eine Strahlenquelle - nach genauer Berechnung - in der Zielregion eingebracht, bis die gewünschte Verteilung der Strahlendosis erreicht ist. Diese Behandlung kann dann in einer oder mehreren Sitzungen durchgeführt werden und hat sich als Zusatztherapie bewährt.

This technique, brachytherapy, in which radioactive “seeds” are temporarily inserted into the breast itself through precisely placed catheters, was originally developed to treat prostate cancer but is gaining acceptance for a variety of other cancers.
http://www.nrgf.org/grants.html

But breast brachytherapy is rarer and has only been around since the early 1990s. Until now, the procedure has been complex and invasive. Physicians have had to insert between 14 and 25 catheters with seeds in the breast to provide enough radiation to the right tissue area.

Brachytherapy seed treatment poised for new heights, but not without a few hurdles along the way. Clinical trials for brachytherapy seed treatment continue to prove successful alternative treatments to surgery. Seed procedures have been performed for several years, and continue to gain market share as surgeons move toward less invasive procedures.
