METHODS/DESIGN: On this potential, randomized, single-center trial for sufferers with spinal bone metastases, RT is carried out as both image-guided intensity-modulated radiotherapy (10x3Gy) or conventionally fractionated exterior beam radiotherapy (10x3Gy). Afterwards radiation-induced toxicity might be assessed and in contrast three and 6 months after the top of radiation.
DISCUSSION: The intention of this pilot examine is the analysis of achievable advantages, with diminished radiation toxicity being the first endpoint within the comparability of intensity-modulated radiotherapy versus standard radiotherapy for sufferers with spinal bone metastases. Secondarily, bone re-calcification, high quality of life, ache aid, spinal instability, and native management might be measured and in contrast between the 2 remedy teams.
