We present the early clinical results achieved with image-guided adaptive brachytherapy (IGABT) with combined intracavitary-interstitial (IC-IS) technique recently implemented in Hungary in the treatment of locally advanced cervical cancer (LACC). Twenty-one patients were treated with radio-chemotherapy (RCT) followed by combined IC-IS BT. At the end of the RCT we assessed the residual tumour with pelvic MRI. On CT images registered with the applicator in place we contoured the organs at risk and the high-risk clinical target volume, which included the whole cervix and the eventual residual tumour in the parametria. No grade 4 toxicity was noticed. At 11 months follow-up the local control rate was 92.3%, the pelvic control rate 86.5%, the distant metastasis free survival and the disease-free survival were 74%. The combined IC-IS treatment was well tolerated. Our clinical results are similar to those reported in the literature.
