Abstract: Through the use of real-time tracking and online imaging, it has been shown that application of an endo-rectal balloon during radiotherapy can reduce intra-fraction prostate motion. This study evaluated the immobilising effect of a hydrogel spacer in reducing inter-fraction target motion in men throughout a course of radiotherapy for clinically localised prostate cancer.
