Impact of dose-distribution uncertainties on rectal ntcp modeling. II: Uncertainty implications.

Abstract:

A trial of nonescalated conformal versus conventional radiotherapy treatment of prostate cancer has been carried out at the Royal Marsden NHS Trust (RMH) and Institute of Cancer Research (ICR), demonstrating a significant reduction in the rate of rectal bleeding reported for patients treated using the conformal technique. The rate of bleeding has been shown to fall significantly as the extent of rectal wall receiving a planned dose-level in excess of 57 Gy is reduced. Dose-distributions deliv...
