Abstract

1. Advanced invasive carcinoma of the cervix is treatable with definitive radiation therapy. 2. Treatment should be delivered in a timely fashion within 8 weeks. 3. The use of diagnostic imaging studies such as CT and/or MRI may become more prevalent in maximizing dose to tumor volume while minimizing dose to normal tissue structures to avoid risks of late complications. 4. Future prospective studies were warranted to determine the optimal delivery system and dose rate in performing brachytherapy for these patients.
