abstract

  • This is the first study to specifically analyse location and number of PSMs as prognostic factors for men who undergo sEBRT. There was no evidence to suggest that the location of a PSM predicted secondary BCR. Further research is needed to determine whether the number of PSMs is an important predictor of BCR after sEBRT.
