Recent studies suggest that SBRT as monotherapy or boost in the management of intermediate or high-risk patients with adenocarcinoma of prostate is a promising treatment approach, with excellent medium-term bDFS and tolerability. Clinicians are finding that that SBRT provides an efficient and convenient treatment option for patients with localized PCa, irrespective of the risk group. In this online roundtable, clinical experts discuss their prostate cancer SBRT programs. They will cover such topics as clinical factors in patient selection, treatment protocols, and strategies for minimizing toxicity to organs-at-risk.
