Treatment of prostate cancer by hypofractionated radiotherapy

Sefik IGDEM [1]


Technological advances in radiation therapy delivery have
permitted the use of high dose per fraction radiotherapy for
early stage prostate cancer. Level I evidence supporting
the safety and efficasy of hypofractionated radiotherapy is
evolving. Moderate and extreme hypofractionation regimens
show promising cancer control but long term results of
noninferiority studies of both modalities are required before
use in routine treatment as standard of care.
Keywords: Prostate cancer, Curative radiotherapy,
Moderate and extreme hypo fractionation
