OBJECTIVE To compare the toxicity of image-guided intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IG-IMRT) to the pelvis or prostate bed (PB) only. To test the hypothesis that the potentially injurious effect of pelvic irradiation can be counterbalanced by reduced irradiated normal tissue volume using IG-IMRT. METHODS Between February 2010 and February 2012, 208 patients with prostate cancer were treated with adjuvant or salvage IG-IMRT to the PB (102 patients, Group PB) or the pelvis and prostate bed (P… CONTINUE READING
