About this trial
Stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) uses special equipment to accurately deliver a high dose of radiotherapy to the prostate in a smaller number of treatments. This study is being conducted to compare conventional radiotherapy (intensity modulated radiotherapy IMRT) over 4 weeks with SBRT over 1-2 weeks for patients with localised intermediate/high risk prostate cancer.
