Top Line: When delivering simultaneous integrated boost for prostate cancer, what urethral dose is associated with increased toxicity?

The Study: The FLAME trial showed that MR-guided simultaneous integrated boost (SIB) of 95 Gy in 35 fractions improved biochemical control without increasing toxicity in men with intermediate or high risk prostate cancer. An important reason it didn’t increase toxicity was that OAR constraints were prioritized over high-dose PTV coverage. There was no urethral dose constraint, though, which begs the question of whether GU toxicity is worse in those who have a SIB volume near the urethra. FLAME bladder constraints included D1cc ≤80Gy and V72 ≤10%. In this secondary analysis, the urethra was delineated on MRI using a 6mm diameter cylindrical structure. They found that both an increasing bladder D2cc and urethra D0.1cc were associated with a continuous increased risk of grade 2+ GU toxicity. While there was no clear threshold dose for GU toxicity, the authors recommended shooting for a urethra constraint of D0.1cc ≤80Gy and a bladder constraint of D2cc ≤80 Gy as these corresponded to a ~10% cumulative risk of grade 2+ GU toxicity.

I'm MAGGIE PORTER I'm sure some of you know me or may have heard of me after all I've been through, though I'm not ashamed to talk about it, a lot of great people has fallen victim of these scammers too, I'm here to share some advice based on my experiences, please don't be used by any impostors, be warned, most of these so-called hackers here are impostors. Now I know how real hackers work, they never advertise themselves in such a credulous manner and they are always discrete, real hackers are known as wizards. I have been ripped off so many times so from experience I know pretty much how they work.

    No real hacker uses a Gmail account simply because it can be tracked. No real Wizard who is good at hacking will like to be tracked down.
    Please be aware of that before hiring a hacker.

    This is good news to all of you looking for how to get your lost money while trying to know about Binary just like myself. I am out here to tell you to be wary no more because the solution is here, my name is Braxton Breanna, and I am an entrepreneur. As an entrepreneur, I should invest, so I was trying to gain knowledge by investing some amount into BTC because of the profits I could get while investing. Unfortunately, I was dealing with the wrong source of which I was defrauded of about $25,000 per the investment plan. I knew at once I couldn't gain access to any of their platforms. Not long ago, while surfing the internet, I randomly came across Wizard Web Recovery. This organization helped me recover about $18,000 which I had previously lost with the supposed legitimate company. All thanks to Wizard Web Recovery for their superb work. I am glad and will boldly make reference to this great company.
