Abstract

To determine the cost-effectiveness of several external beam radiation treatment modalities for the treatment of patients with localized prostate cancer. A lifetime Markov model incorporated the probabilities of experiencing treatment-related long-term toxicity or death. Toxicity probab...read more

Radiosensitizers

A radiosensitizer is an agent that makes tumor cells more sensitive to radiation therapy. It is sometimes also known as a radiation sensitizer or radio-enhancer. Discover the latest research on radiosensitizers here.
