BACKGROUND Image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT) accurately delivers a high dose of potentially tumoricidal radiation to its target while sparing adjacent healthy tissue. Application of IGRT to unresectable pancreatic cancer requires the use of fiducials to track the precise location of the tumor. Fiducial markers have been successfully placed endoscopically. OBJECTIVE To determine the feasibility of EUS-guided gold fiducial placement for IGRT. DESIGN Prospective case series. SETTING… CONTINUE READING
