Overall Status
This protocol describes a Phase 2 clinical trial of online adaptive Radiotherapy, using a library of 3 dose plans corresponding to Small, Medium and Large size bladder. The procedure includes 'Common Toxicity Criteria for Adverse Effects'(CTCAE) for registration of adverse effects (baseline, every 2'nd week during RT, 2 weeks, 3, 6, 12 and 24 month after RT) as well as cineMR for intra-fractional motion (baseline and every week during RT). Patients receive standard non-adaptive RT in the first week. Delineations of the bladder on the Cone-Beam scans (CBCT) from first week of treatment are used for planning the Small and Medium size bladder plans. Large size plan are the standard non-adaptive treatment plan used for the first week of treatment. A margin of 5 mm for intra fractional movement is used.
Detailed Description
After inclusion patients are asked about their adverse effects by an oncologist using CTCAE (version 4.0) questionnaire. A planning CT-scan is acquired and for the first 10 patients also a MR-scan for intra fractional motion is acquired. The MR sequence is repeated every week during radiotherapy. The first week of treatment a standard non-adaptive IMRT-plan is used and CBCT-scans are acquired before and after treatment. The CBCT-scans are used for delineation of the bladder on the CBCT-scans from the first 4 fractions. The adaptive plans are generated from the union of the first 4 CBCT-bladders and the planning CT bladder (medium size) and the volume contained in at least 2 out of the 5 bladder volumes (small size). Details can be found in the reference list. From the 6'Th fraction the treatment is performed using the most appropriate size of treatment plan. CTCAE is repeated every other week during radiotherapy and 2 weeks, 3, 6, 12 and 24 month after radiotherapy.
