Conclusions:
The precision of high-dose, tight margin IMRT--made possible via the accuracy offered by seed marker-based IGRT--results in excellent and very low treatment morbidity. If these outcomes hold over time and can be reproduced by others, IMRT+IGRT for prostate cancer will yield some of the lowest toxicity rates of any of the definitive local treatments for this disease.
