To determine whether the dose-volume histograms (DVH's) for the rectum and bladder constructed using biological-effective dose (BED-DVH's) better correlate with late gastrointestinal (GI) and genitourinary (GU) toxicity after treatment with external beam radiotherapy for prostate cancer than conventional DVH's (C-DVH's). The charts of 190 patients treated(More)
UNLABELLED The goal of this study was to evaluate the role of radioimmunoscintigraphy (RIS) directed against prostate-specific membrane antigen in modifying postprostatectomy prostate fossa clinical target volume (CTV) definition. METHODS The records of 25 postprostatectomy patients who received external-beam radiotherapy after prostatectomy and who(More)
The purpose of this investigation was to explore the potential benefit of hormone therapy in addition to external beam radiotherapy for patients with early-stage (T1-2), intermediate-(prostate-specific antigen [PSA] > 10 or Gleason score >or= 7) or high-risk (PSA > 10 and Gleason score >or= 7) prostate cancer. The charts of 412 patients with early-stage(More)
UNLABELLED Our goal was to evaluate the role of radioimmunoscintigraphy (RIS) directed against prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) in influencing postprostatectomy radiotherapy (RT) toxicity and biochemical control. METHODS The records of 107 postprostatectomy RT patients were reviewed. The group for whom no RIS scan was obtained (group A, n = 54)(More)
UNLABELLED The aim of this study was to evaluate the role of radioimmunoscintigraphy (RIS) directed against prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) in influencing postradical retropubic prostatectomy (RRP) radiotherapy (RT) decision making. METHODS The records of consecutive patients who underwent RRP, who were referred for consideration of RT, and for(More)
The goal of this investigation is to characterize the clinical significance of the rebound interval (RI) after neoadjuvant short-course hormonal therapy (HT) and external-beam radiation therapy (RT), during which the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) may rise because of hormone withdrawal prior to full RT efficacy. The charts of 257 consecutive patients with(More)
