  • Histologic confirmation of prostate adenocarcinoma
  • T2-T3 tumors, N0 (clinically by no evidence of metastatic lymph nodes on CT or MRI)
  • No direct evidence of regional or distant metastases
  • PSA less than or equal to 50 μg/ml
  • Visible gross tumor at the prostate endorectal coil MRI.
  • The ultrasound or MRI based volume estimation of the patient's prostate gland no greater than 70g or 70cc
  • No significant urinary obstructive symptoms; IPSS score must be ≤ 15 (alpha blockers allowed)
  • Patient must have undergone an endorectal coil magnetic resonance image (MRI) of the prostatic gland (before rectal spacer if any),
  • Patient must have undergone the following assessments in case of PSA ≥ 20μg/L, and/or T3 tumor and/or Gleason Score ≥ 8:
  • bone scan
  • Chest abdominal and pelvis computed tomography (CT) scan
  • If tumor is localized at less than 3 mm from the rectum a rectal spacer is mandatory. Patient accepts the rectal spacer to be injected before treatment starts
  • Patient accepts to have one planning MRI after the injection of rectal spacer (without endorectal coil)
  • Patient accepts the preparation of the bladder (bladder full), before the planning MRI, planning CT and then before each treatment fraction

Exclusion Criteria:

  • History of inflammatory colitis (including Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis)
