Three-dimensional conformal radiotherapy is an effective means of delivering high doses of radiation with enhanced precision. Several institutions have gained substantial experience using this modality for patients with clinically localized prostate cancer. Reports from these centers have demonstrated not only excellent tolerance despite the administration of higher radiation doses, but improved biochemical and local control outcomes as well. Meticulous attention to treatment technique and dose… CONTINUE READING
