  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the incidence of urinary and gastrointestinal acute and late side effects in patients treated with stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) to the prostate. Stereotactic radiation therapy is given as five treatments over a 2-3 week period. The prostate is localized and the plan is reoptimized as needed prior to each treatment.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Stereotactic Radiotherapy
Five fractions of 7.4 Gy each
Radiation: SBRT Prostate
Five fractions of 7.4 Gy. The total dose will be 37 Gy. A minimum of 36 hours and a maximum of 96 hours should separate each treatment. No more than 3 fractions will be delivered per week. The total duration of treatment will be no shorter than 10 days and no longer than 18 days.
Other Names:
  • Stereotactic body radiation therapy
  • External beam radiation therapy

Detailed Description:

This protocol requires radiation treatments to be performed with a stereotactic technique with the use of a 3-D coordinate system defined by implanted transponders (i.e. Calypso) or use of the ExacTrac system and/or use cone-beam CT (CBCT) with fiducial markers.

  • Previous or concurrent cytotoxic chemotherapy for prostate cancer
  • Prosthetic implants in the pelvic region that contain metal or conductive materials (e.g., an artificial hip).
