Brief description Increasing prostate radiotherapy cure rates by increasing radiation dose is limited by side-effects in the rectum and bladder which can greatly decrease patient quality of life. This study will utilise detailed data, collected during a large Australasian trial, to extract information on how patterns of dose delivery influence side-effects in the bladder and rectum, including a novel definition of rectal toxicity. The result will be more effective future treatment.
