OBJECTIVES To estimate the rates of rectal bleeding after dose-escalated three-dimensional conformal radiation therapy (3D-CRT) on a prospective, Phase II study in which a modified intrarectal balloon was used for prostate gland localization and immobilization. METHODS The study cohort comprised 100 men with biopsy-proven adenocarcinoma of the prostate and at least one high-risk feature (prostate-specific antigen level greater than 10 ng/mL, Gleason score 7 or higher, or clinical or… CONTINUE READING
