PURPOSE The impact of the delivery of radiotherapy (RT) on treatment results in rectal cancer patients is unknown. METHODS AND MATERIALS The data from 788 patients with rectal cancer treated within the German CAO/AIO/ARO-94 phase III trial were analyzed concerning the impact of the delivery of RT (adequate RT: minimal radiation RT dose delivered, 4300 cGy for neoadjuvant RT or 4700 cGy for adjuvant RT; completion of RT in <44 days for neoadjuvant RT or <49 days for adjuvant RT) in different… CONTINUE READING
