The purpose of the study is to increase the radiation dose (Boost) to the bladder tumor. The bladder cancer patients included in the study will undergo tumor demarcation. The bladder demarcations will then be the target for an image-guided boost delivered precisely to the expected tumor site.

Condition Intervention Phase
Bladder Neoplasms
Radiation: Radiation boost
Phase 1
Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
