Brief description Many studies have shown that the bladder can move, change in size and shape through a course of radiation therapy. As shown in a pilot study, with the online adaptive radiotherapy technique trained staff can daily match the radiation fields to the bladder position and size using a type of CT scan. Potential benefits are better cancer coverage with improved cancer control and less normal tissue irradiation. This study will determine if the technique will work across multiple Australian centres.
