Study With Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy With Cisplatin to Treat Stage I-IVA Cervical Cancer

Read time: 1 mins
Last updated:29th Mar 2012
The purpose of this study is to find out whether patients with cervical cancer treated with IMRT have less side effects with equal cancer control compared to standard radiation techniques. With standard radiation techniques, normal pelvic organs near the tumor receive radiation dose, which leads to side effects. IMRT is a new radiation technique that can reduce radiation dose to these organs and may reduce side effects.
