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...

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...

Introduction Patients with muscle invasive bladder cancer (MIBC) who are unfit and unsuitable for standard radical treatment with cystectomy or daily radiotherapy present a large unmet clinical need. Untreated, they suffer high cancer specific mortality and risk significant disease-related local symptoms. Hypofractionated radiotherapy (delivering higher doses in fewer fractions/visits) is a potential treatment solution but could be compromised by the mobile nature of the bladder, resulting in ta...

Abstract Background and Purpose Hypofractionated bladder RT with or without image guided adaptive planning (HYBRID) is a multicentre clinical trial investigating “Plan of the Day” (PoD) adaptive radiotherapy for bladder cancer. To ensure correct PoD selection a pre-accrual guidance and assessment module was developed as part of an image guided radiotherapy quality assurance (IGRT QA) credentialing programme. This study aimed to evaluate its feasibility and effectiveness across multiple recruitin...
