Advances in radiation therapy have led to the development of multiple methods to deliver radiotherapy accurately to a defined three-dimensional target. This technology is most appropriate in the management of early stage prostatic cancer. Precise delivery of radiotherapy can control prostate cancer while minimizing normal tissue (e.g., bladder and rectum) complications.
