Abstract

The thesis provides an overview and tries to explain the nationwide trends and variations of primary radiotherapy use in non-metastatic stages of cancer types often seen at radiotherapeutic facilities: lung cancer – both non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and small cell lung cancer (SCLC), breast cancer – both ductal carcinoma in-situ (DCIS) and invasive breast cancer, prostate cancer, and rectal cancer. The radiotherapy utilization rates were investigated in the broader context of multidisciplinary treatment of these tumor types. Data from the Netherlands Cancer Registry were used to provide these insights.
