Daily Adaptive Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy for Prostate Cancer with Urethral Sparing: A Prospective Trial Using an Individualized Approach to Reduce Urinary Toxicity (ARTIA-Prostate)
This trial is a prospective, single-arm, multi-center clinical trial designed to assess
whether adaptive radiotherapy with urethral sparing for low to intermediate risk localized
prostate cancer will translate into a decreased rate of patient reported acute urinary side
effects, as measured by the patient reported EPIC-26 questionnaire, compared with the
historically reported rate for non-adaptive, non-urethral sparing prostate SBRT.
1. Patient has NCCN low or intermediate risk prostate cancer that is biopsy proven.
2. Prostate volume is ≤80cc as assessed by MRI prior to radiotherapy.
3. AUA/IPSS score is ≤ 15.
4. ECOG performance status is ≤2 (or Karnofsky score is ≥60%).
5. Patient has no PIRADS 4 or 5 lesion on prostate MRI contacting the urethra (determined
at physician discretion).
6. Patient has the ability to complete required patient questionnaires.
7. Patient age ≥ 18 years (or greater than the local age of majority).
8. Patient has the ability to understand and the willingness to sign a written informed

2. Patient has had prior overlapping pelvic radiotherapy.
3. Patient has had prior transurethral resection of the prostate, prostate HIFU, or
4. Patient has node positive prostate cancer.
