Abstract

In November 2013, we moved from 3D Conformal Radiotherapy to Image-Guided Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy (IG-IMRT) and Image-Guided Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy (IG-VMAT) to treat squamous anal cancer. We now report on the early clinical outcomes with these new techniques. Radiotherapy was planned and delivered as per the United Kingdom national guidelines (www.analimrtguidance.co.uk).
