RTOG issues new guidance for post-surgical EBRT

Michalski et al. have published consensus guidelines from a Radiation Therapy Oncology Group  (RTOG) committee on the  appropriate clinical target volume of the prostate fossa (PF-CTV) for post-surgical, conformal radiation therapy for prostate cancer.

Examples of such appropriate PF-CTV are now available as a CT-scan image atlas on the RTOG web site. The authors believe that this set of guidelines will allow uniformity in defining PF-CTV for clinical trials that include radiation therapy following radical prostatectomy.
