TROG 15.01 (SPARK) Efficacy of Kilovoltage Intrafraction Monitoring (KIM) in men with prostate cancer undergoing stereotactic prostate radiotherapy

Brief Summary

This study will determine the efficacy of the addition of Kilovoltage Intrafraction Monitoring during stereotactic prostate adaptive radiotherapy in prostate cancer patients. Who is it for? You may be eligible to join this study if you are aged 18 years or above and have histologically proven prostate adenocarcinoma with low or intermediate disease risk. Study details All participants will receive multi-fraction stereotactic prostate adaptive radiotherapy at 36.25 Gy in 5 fractions over 2-5 weeks. A new technology, known as Kilovoltage Intrafraction Monitoring (KIM), will be used which allows images of a tumour to be taken in real-time while the treatment is occurring. This enables strategies such as patient shifting or beam shifting during treatment which could potentially improve the accuracy of the treatment and reduce the patient’s side effects. In addition, due to the accuracy of KIM in targeting tumours, the number of treatment sessions this group of patients will require will be reduced to five as opposed to the 40 sessions required using more conventional treatment methods. Efficacy of KIM will be assessed by the dose accumulation method for each session. Participants will be followed for up to 2 years, in order to determine patient treatment outcomes, and toxicity. The researchers expect this trial to result in better targeted prostate cancer patient outcomes with lower toxicity. The potential application of KIM to other tumour sites will pave the way for additional trials with Australasian radiation oncology leading the world.
