  • PURPOSE To investigate whether current fractionation and brachytherapy protraction schemes for the treatment of prostatic cancer with radiation are optimal, or could be improved. [...] Key Method The standard linear-quadratic model was used for the analysis. RESULTS Prostatic cancers appear significantly more sensitive to changes in fractionation than most other cancers. The estimated alpha/beta value is 1.5 Gy [0.8, 2.2].Expand Abstract
