The management of patients with lymph node (LN) positive prostate cancer remains controversial, with some authors advocating systemic therapy [1], and others recommending the use of radiation therapy [2]. With the advent of prostate specific membrane antigen (PSMA) positron emission tomography (PET), LN metastases are being detected early, and curative [...]

Research on side effects of radiotherapy has been a steadily growing field of interest, as advances in treatment (e.g. multimodality imaging, proton therapy, targeted agents) have led to both increased life expectancy in cancer survivors and a greater degree of control in sparing organs-at-risk (OARs) [1]. Adequate delineation of OARs [...]

Radiation Therapy (RT) for patients with thoracic or upper abdominal tumours involves complex motion mitigation strategies to ensure accurate irradiation of the target [1]. These strategies, however, have shortcomings. For instance, patient-specific margin strategies like Internal Target Volume (ITV) or MidPosition, which encompass the tumour trajectory, inevitably, either completely or [...]

The dose response relations of the rectum – a key organ at risk (OAR) in radiotherapy (RT) of all pelvic tumour sites – have been investigated in a number of studies, mostly following treatment with photons. The QUANTEC review of the rectum showed that while the high-dose regions (≥60 Gy) in [...]

For HNC patients, RT is an essential curative and organ-preserving treatment modality, which can be delivered by itself or combined with chemotherapy or surgery. However, several reports have demonstrated that RT is related to an increased risk of CVD in HNC patients [1–3]. It might have resulted from the chronic [...]
