Purpose

In this study, participants will have standard Androgen Deprivation Therapy and undergo standard external beam radiation therapy to the prostate and at-risk lymph nodes by Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy. The subsequent *boost* radiation therapy to the prostate alone will be given using the CyberKnife, rather than using the standard Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy. This study will also see how CyberKnife affects the quality of the participant's life.

Signed IRB approved informed consent 9. Patient eligible to have an MRI 10. Must be able to tolerate the confinement of an MRI procedure

Exclusion Criteria

  1. No prior prostate surgery (including TURP) or prostate cancer treatment with the exception of androgen deprivation therapy 2. No prior radiotherapy to the pelvis 3. No implanted hardware (including metal) or other material that would prohibit appropriate treatment planning or treatment delivery 4. No metastatic disease, with the exception of lymph node positive disease 5. No chemotherapy for a malignancy in the last 5 years. 6. No history of an invasive malignancy (other than basal or squamous skin cancers) in the last 5 years. 7.

Detailed Description

In this study, participants will have standard androgen deprivation therapy and undergo standard radiation therapy to the prostate and at-risk lymph nodes by intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT). The subsequent *boost* radiation therapy to the prostate alone will be given using the CyberKnife, rather than using the standard Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy. This study will also see how CyberKnife affects the quality of the participant's life.
