Numerical Study of Effects of Bladder Filling on Prostate Positioning In Radiotherapy

Abstract:

The success of radical prostate radiotherapy depends on delivery of high dose radiotherapy to a defined tissue volume with a high degree of positional accuracy. Modern techniques such as conformal and intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) can deliver increased radiation dose to the tumour without increased toxicity, but at the expense of requiring smaller delineated treatment margins, which is often difficult to control due to complex organ interactions. In prostate cancer radiotherapy, the...
