PURPOSE To compare the dose and volume of bladder and rectum treated using high-dose-rate (HDR) prostate implant boost versus conformal external beam radiotherapy boost, and to use the dose-volume information to perform a critical volume tolerance (CVT) analysis and then estimate the potential for further dose escalation using HDR brachytherapy boost. METHODS AND MATERIALS Using CT scan data collected before and after patients underwent HDR prostate implant, a 7-field conformal prostate-only… CONTINUE READING
