PURPOSE To determine the target coverage for proton therapy with and without image guidance and daily prebeam reorientation. METHODS AND MATERIALS A total of 207 prostate positions were analyzed for 9 prostate cancer patients treated using our low-risk prostate proton therapy protocol (University of Florida Proton Therapy Institute 001). The planning target volume was defined as the prostate plus a 5-mm axial and 8-mm superoinferior extension. The prostate was repositioned using 5- and 10-mm… CONTINUE READING
