In comparing IMRT, Proton and conformal therapies, they conclude that IMRT is better than conventional conformal radiation therapy (CRT) for reducing certain side effects and preventing cancer recurrence.

Dr. Chen is senior author on a paper accepted for publication in JAMA. Drs. Nate Sheets and Gregg Goldin are co-first authors and Jordan Holmes is co-author:

Comparative effectiveness of intensity modulated radiation therapy, proton therapy and conformal radiation therapy in the treatment of localized prostate cancer.
