Impact of the use of an endorectal balloon on rectal dosimetry during stereotactic body radiation therapy for localized prostate cancer.

Abstract

PURPOSE Endorectal balloons may be of benefit during stereotactic body radiation therapy of the prostate to limit intrafraction prostatic motion and potentially minimize rectal toxicity. We evaluated the effect of the endorectal balloon (ERB) on rectal dosimetry, specifically the absolute volume of rectum receiving high dose. METHODS AND MATERIALS Eleven… (More)
