Title:  RADIATION ONCOLOGY AND ELDERLY PATIENTS

Journal Section

Abstract:

Radiotherapy (RT) is widely used in the management of elderly cancer patients but age-oriented randomized trials are lacking especially in older-unfit patients. This could determine a risk of both over- and under-treatment. To determine a correct therapeutic choice it is necessary  a complete clinical evaluation through a "multidimensional" analysis which evaluates comorbidities, functional status, cognitive, psychological characteristics and individual social support.
