Cone-beam CT Guided Stereotactic Radiation Therapy for Locally Advanced Pancreatic Cancer
Read time: 1 mins
Last updated:9th Jul 2013
Pancreatic cancer has a very poor survival, due to late diagnosis and lack of sufficient treatment options for locally advanced tumors and metastasized patients. High dose radiotherapy with small margins seems feasible with current technical possibilities, e.g. by fiducial guided stereotactic radiotherapy. In this study, we want to evaluate safety and technical feasibility for cone beam CT guided stereotactic radiotherapy for locally advanced pancreatic carcinoma.
