Purpose/Objectives: Radiation therapy (RT) for the treatment of prostate cancer after radical prostatectomy (RP) is widely accepted. With technological advances, radiation treatment technique and dosimetry may vary. The purpose of this study is to quantify dosimetric difference of proton therapy versus VMAT and IMRT focusing on bladder and rectal dose sparing and target coverage.
