Abstract

Patients diagnosed with prostate cancer may also have a prosthetic hip. When planning radiotherapy for these patients, one must consider the attenuation of the dose when the beam passes through the prosthetic hip. It is best to avoid administration of radiation to the target through the prosthesis. Example treatment plans are evaluated. The potential advantages and disadvantages of each plan are reviewed.
