High risk prostate cancer (HR-PrCa) is a subset of localized PrCa with significant potential for morbidity and mortality associated with disease recurrence and metastasis. Radiotherapy combined with Androgen Deprivation Therapy has been the standard of care for many years in HR-PrCa. In recent years, dose escalation, hypo-fractionation and high precision delivery with immobilization and image-guidance have substantially changed the face of modern PrCa radiotherapy, improving treatment convenienc...

Abstract Background Standard therapy for high risk (HR) prostate cancer (PrCa) involves Androgen Deprivation Therapy (ADT) and pelvic conventional fractionation (CF) external beam radiotherapy (EBRT) followed by boost CF-EBRT treatment to prostate for a total of 78-80 Gy in 39-40 fractions. This is a long and inconvenient treatment for patients. Brachytherapy boost treatment studies indicate that escalation of biological dose of radiotherapy (RT) can improve outcomes in HR-PrCa. However, brachyt...

Abstract Background Despite improved staging and surgical techniques, the rate of incomplete resection (R1) of non–small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) has not significantly decreased. Patients with R1 resection have worse survival compared with those with complete resection (R0). Stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) is a rapid and convenient radiotherapy treatment that delivers high-dose radiotherapy to tumors with high precision while sparing normal organs. Although its efficacy in treating small l...
