Breakthroughs in Radiation

Historically radiation side effects and cure rates were not comparable to what surgery could achieve. However, with breakthroughs in radiation, computerized beam radiation now rivals surgery for cure rates and minimizes the risk of side effects.

This episode of PROSTATE PROS compares and contrasts the three types of computerized beam radiation: IMRT, IMPT, and SBRT. The episode also covers how to prevent and manage side effects of radiation therapy.
