Two weeks ago we were fortunate to have Dr. Rossi
from LLU speak at our monthly Us TOO prostate cancer
support group meeting. He is really a great presenter of
any thing pertaining to external beam radiation world. As we
used to say "he knows his onions". An interesting feature of his presentations is the info he generates as aside comments.
One of his "oh by the way" gems was the statement
that in about two months LLU was going to start a four
and a half week treatment plan as opposed to the nine
week plan currently employed. I tried to find something LLU
specific about it on the net but no joy. I did find that the
shortened treatments at higher fractional doses is called
"hypofractionation". I just thought that there might be
a serious treatment shopper out there that can use the
tip and look into it if so inclined.
SHOOT I just hit a button I wasn't supposed to and blew up the whole mess. I better quit!
