Purpose or Objective Radiotherapy of bladder carcinoma requires substantial CTV-PTV margins to account for day-to-day bladder volume variations. A method to reduce these margins, and hence organs at risk (OAR) dose, is the Plan of the Day method (PotD). In preparation of a PotD approach, we introduced an offline adaptive radiotherapy (ART) procedure based on ConeBeam CT (CBCT) analysis to select individualized adequate margins for the bladder. Tight PTV margins were defined on a retrospective
