Rock in addition to the report listed, my RO also sent me this study performed at Stanford University and since confirmed at Mayo Clinic. The topic is on Whole Pelvic Radiation Therapy or WPRT. It suggests that when treating the pelvic lymph system the results are improved in high risk patients as opposed to just treating the prostate bed (PBRT). He has since stated at our USTOO meetings that this is now widely accepted. In both studies, the patient is post surgery and high risk but with no recurrance as yet.
