Reporting Groups
  Description
Single-fraction

Patients receive single-fraction radiotherapy (8 Gy) on day 1.

radiation therapy: Given in a single fraction or multiple fractions

Multiple-fraction

Patients receive multiple-fraction radiotherapy (to a total of 20 Gy) over 5 days or over 8 days if re-irradiation of the spine and/or whole pelvis is involved AND prior initial radiotherapy was given in multiple fractions.

radiation therapy: Given in a single fraction or multiple fractions
