PURPOSE The positioning of the prostate is improved with the use of the fluoroscopic real-time tumor-tracking radiation therapy system for prostate cancer. The acute radiation reaction and preliminary tumor response of prostate cancer to hypofractionated intensity-modulated radiation therapy assisted with real-time tumor-tracking radiation therapy were investigated in this study. METHODS Patients were classified into prognostic risk groups on the basis of the presence of the pretreatment… CONTINUE READING
