Purpose Hypofractionated radiation therapy can be used to treat patients with muscle-invasive bladder cancer unable to have radical therapy. Toxicity is a key concern, but adaptive plan-of the day (POD) image-guided radiation therapy delivery could improve outcomes by minimizing the volume of normal tissue irradiated. The HYBRID trial assessed the multicenter implementation, safety, and efficacy of this strategy. Methods HYBRID is a Phase II randomized trial that was conducted at 14 UK hospitals...

Technological advancement has facilitated patient-specific radiotherapy in bladder cancer. This has been made possible by developments in image-guided radiotherapy (IGRT). Particularly transformative has been the integration of volumetric imaging into the workflow. The ability to visualise the bladder target using cone beam computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging initially assisted with determining the magnitude of inter- and intra-fraction target change. It has led to greater confide...

Abstract Aims Adaptive radiotherapy (ART) is an emerging advanced treatment option for bladder cancer patients. Therapeutic radiographers (RTTs) are central to the successful delivery of this treatment. The purpose of this work was to evaluate the image-guided radiotherapy (IGRT) and ART experience of RTTs before participating in the RAIDER trial. A plan of the day (PoD) quality assurance programme was then implemented. Finally, the post-trial experience of RTTs was evaluated, together with the ...

BACKGROUND Small cell carcinoma of the bladder (SCCB) is rare, accounting for under 1% of all bladder carcinomas. It is aggressive and outcomes are poor due to early metastatic spread. Owing to its rarity, there are limitations on data to propose standardised management pathways. PATIENTS AND METHODS We conducted a retrospective analysis of patients presenting with pure or predominant histology SCCB to 26 UK institutions between 2006 and 2016. Data cut-off date was 1/2/2018. We report on patient...

Radiotherapy has an important role in the curative and palliative treatment settings for bladder cancer. As a target for radiotherapy the bladder presents a number of technical challenges. These include poor tumour visualisation and the variability in bladder size and position both between and during treatment delivery. Evidence favours use of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) as an important means of tumour visualisation and local staging. The availability of hybrid systems incorporating both MR...

Introduction Daily radiotherapy delivered with radiosensitisation offers patients with muscle invasive bladder cancer (MIBC) comparable outcomes to cystectomy with functional organ preservation. Most recurrences following radiotherapy occur within the bladder. Increasing the delivered radiotherapy dose to the tumour may further improve local control. Developments in image-guided radiotherapy have allowed bladder tumour-focused ‘plan of the day’ radiotherapy delivery. We aim to test within a rand...
