Randomized Trial of a Hypofractionated Radiation
Regimen for the Treatment of Localized Prostate Cancer.
Today, Cleveland Clinic and other centers are using hypofractionated radiation
regimens, which significantly reduce the number of treatments.
However, hypofractionated radiation
therapy control rate was gradually reported surpassing the traditional fraction significantly.
Long-term results of hypofractionated radiation
therapy for breast cancer.
2% of the permitted cohort received hypofractionated radiation
therapy in 2013.
The reason for this discrepancy was the introduction of a hypofractionated radiation
protocol, which was introduced with the aim of reducing waiting times by using higher, but fewer, daily doses of radiation, and thereby decreasing the overall duration of treatment.
31] Hypofractionated radiation
therapy offers the advantage of a more efficient and productive use of radiotherapy departments resources; whether machine time, staffing of treatment units, lower expenses in addition to far better patients convenience.
Typically, patients can finish treatment in 4 weeks or less with hypofractionated radiation
2% for women in the hypofractionated radiation
group, with approximately 70% of patients having good to excellent cosmetic results.
In a multivariate Cox analysis, hypofractionated radiation
therapy reduced the risk of biochemical failure by roughly 70% (hazard ratio 0.
The InTempo System takes the treatment of prostate cancer to an entirely new level, giving clinicians added confidence when delivering high-dose, hypofractionated radiation
