Quality of Life and Functional Outcomes After Combined Modality Therapy for Anal Cancer: A Comparison of Conventional Versus Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy (ANAL0002)
The purpose of this study is show that intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT), as compared with conventional radiotherapy, improves the precision of tumor targeting and reduces the acute and late effects of radiation toxicity when used to treat anal cancer. Results from this work will provide a basis for incorporating the use of IMRT to treat anal cancer in future treatment protocols.
