Radiation Therapy for Pancreatic Cancer: An ASTRO Clinical Practice Guideline

This is a clinical practice guideline for patients with pancreatic cancer. The guideline examines radiation therapy (RT) and stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) in these patients, and provides guidance for treatment planning and the management of RT-associated toxicities. Specific topics discussed include the indications for conventionally fractionated RT and SBRT, appropriate dose-fractionation and target volumes, sequencing of chemotherapy and RT, indications for palliative RT, and prophylactic medications for mitigating toxicity.
