    1. 1. Radiation Therapy for Prostate Cancer Robert Miller MD www.aboutcancer.com
    2. 2. NCCN.org
    3. 3. Prostate Guidelines1. Low risk of extracapsular spread, then external beam or seeds alone2. Intermediate risk then some (or all) of the radiation should be by external3. High risk then hormone therapy should be added to the radiation4. External beam should be daily image guided intensity modulated (IGRT)5. Need high dose radiation (75 to 81 Gy)
    4. 4. The prostategland has acapsule aroundit, and cancersarise close tothe capsule, thecancer mayinvade throughthe capsule
    5. 5. Age: 67 / Stage T1c / Gleason 6 / PSA 5 =27.6% risk of extracapsular spreadAge: 67, Stage T2b, Gleason 7/ PSA 12 =86.2% risk of extracapsular spread
    6. 6. Laparoscopic Prostate Surgery The surgeon tries to dissect the prostate away from the rectum, bladder, the neurovascular bundle (nerves) and penile urethra
    7. 7. Radiation Fields with Prostate CancerA Low Dose Large Area (Phase 1) With radiation it is possible to include a wider area around the prostate to cover any cells that may have escaped After the highest safe dose is reached, the radiation target will be made smaller
    8. 8. Radiation Fields with Prostate CancerA High Dose Large Area (Phase 2) The final, high dose radiation target will be focused very precisely only on the prostate gland
    9. 9. Prostate Cures Rates by Treatment and Dose External beam > 72Gy Surgery or Seeds External beam < 72Gy IJROBP 2004; 58:25 Months
    10. 10. Prostate Cancer Relapse Rate by Radiation Dose < 72Gy 72 - 82Gy 82Gy Years Kupelian. IJROBP 2008:71:16
    11. 11. Salvage (postOp) radiation works best if the radiation dose is high
    12. 12. Survival Hormone Therapy plus Radiation by Gleason Score95 5 year cure rate radiation radiation plus hormones90858075706560 3+3 3+4 4+4 4+5 5+5 Gleason Score
    13. 13. Cure Rates for High Risk Prostate Cancer Hormones + External + Seeds Surgery Seeds alone IJROBP 2006;66:1092 Months
    14. 14. 10 Year Cure Rates for Patients with High Risk Prostate Cancer (PSA >20 or Gleason 8-10 or T3)Treatment Number Cure RateRadical 1,238 92%ProstatectomyRadiation plus 344 92%HormonesRadiation 265 88% Mayo Clinic Study (Cancer Jan 10, 2011)
    15. 15. Typical PSA Decline after External Beam Months Since Completing Radiation
    16. 16. Declining PSA Levels after Seed Implant PSA bounce Years
    17. 17. Evolving RadiationTechnology
    18. 18. CT scan is obtained at the time of the Simulation Fiducials may be inserted before this step. CT images are then imported into the treatment planning computer
    19. 19. Goal = radiation zone precisely around the prostate cancer with small margin bladder prostateRadiation zone rectum
    20. 20. IMRT (intensitymodulatedradiation therapy) using 7 different beamsto target the prostateThe computer candetermine the optimalnumber of beams todeliver the radiationdose to hit the target andavoid other structures
    21. 21. After IMRT was established then IGRT(image guided) was introduced
    22. 22. Lower Risk of Side Effects with Image Guided IMRT compared to IMRT
    23. 23. Better Cure Rates with Image Guided IMRT compared to IMRT for Prostate Intermediate Risk High Risk
    24. 24. The most sophisticated technique for image guided IMRT is Tomotherapy.Combine a CT scan and linear accelerator to ultimate intargeting (IGRT) and ultimate in delivery (dynamic, helicalIMRT) ability to daily adjust the beam (ART or adaptiveradiotherapy)
    25. 25. There is significant movement of the prostate gland based on daily gas in rectum Planned target No Rectal gasPlanned target,missed badly ifrectal gas pushesthe prostate Rectal gasforward
    26. 26. Significant movement of the prostate gland based on daily gas in rectumInitial computer target for prostate (red circle) would have badlymissed the target if no adjustments were made based on the amountof rectal gas
    27. 27. Importance of daily CT targeting onTomotherapy and adjusting the treatment daily Very little bowel gas on initial study and the dose (red) targets the prostate gland closely large bowel gas on later treatment day and the dose (red) will cover half the rectum if an adjustment is Not made
    28. 28. If noadjustmentwas madeActualtreatment onTomotherapy
    29. 29. Using Tomotherapy to tightly target theprostate with very little radiation hitting the bladder or rectum
    30. 30. Radiosurgery for Cancer
    31. 31. Cyberknife Radiosurgery
    32. 32. Non Isocentric Delivery with CK Beams
    33. 33. Conformality: Dose Painting
    34. 34. SBRT Prostate Cancer / Naples-TampaExperience  Feb 2005 – Apr 2008 (Naples, FL) • 164 monotherapy, 35 Gy • 168 monotherapy, 36.25 Gy • 59 EBRT + CK boost  Jul 2008 – Dec 2011 (Tampa, FL) • 121 monotherapy, 36.25 Gy • 10 monotherapy, 38 GY • 12 EBRT + CK boost
    35. 35. PSA Response to CyberKnife Mean PSAi 6.8ng/ml Mean PSAp 0.78ng/ml97% biochemical control at 30 months median follow-up
    36. 36. Cure Rate after Cyberknife N = 515, Alan Katz in New York
    37. 37. PSA Response after Cyberknife Follow-up median 54 months (range, 7 - 78) 7 Median PSA 6 35 Gy 36.25 Gy – 36 m 0.20 ng/ml 5 – 60 m 0.10 ng/ml PSA ng/ml 4 3 By 48 months 2 – 290 of 329 pts 1 PSA < 0.5 0 0 12 24 36 48 60 72 Months
    38. 38. Prostate Seed Implants
    39. 39. A grid or template with holes every 5mm areused to line up the needles
    40. 40. The needles are distributed
    41. 41. The Mick ‘Gun’ is used to push the radioactiveseeds into the gland
    42. 42. The seeds are left behind, distributed throughthe gland and slowly radiate the cancer
    43. 43. CT scans of the prostatewill show the seeds andthe studies will be usedto calculate theradiation dose
    44. 44. Side Effects of Prostate Radiation
    45. 45. Side Effects ofProstate RadiationIs related to the sizeand area of normalstructures that areover lapped by theradiation zone…thegoal is to keep theradiation zone assmall as possible
    46. 46. Side Effects of Prostate Radiation With IMRT and image guided techniques the goal is to shape the radiation zone very precisely , based on the type of cancer (high Gleason might require a larger margin around the gland)
    47. 47. Side Effects of Prostate Radiation Radiation zoneThe structures that will get hit by radiationand have inflammation or irritation:bladder, urethra and rectum
    48. 48. Radiation zone Short Term Side Effects: Irritation of bladder, urethra and rectum1. Urinary frequency (getting up at night very few hours, take NSAID’s, or may benefit from medication)2. Slight burning or stinging with urination (drink cranberry juice)3. Diarrhea or more frequent, softer bowel movements, rectal soreness (take Imodium)4. Mild skin irritation is now rarely seen5. Fatigue is common
    49. 49. Radiation zone Long Term Side Effects: Irritation of bladder, urethra and rectumChronic radiation cystitis or proctitis: about 6% of themen will have occasional episodes of blood in the urine orwith bowel movements, this usually responds tomedication (e.g. cortisone suppositories) The risk ofserious damage to the bladder and rectum is now less than1%Impotence: about 30% of men have problems afterradiation (see the next slides)
