Abstract

An increasing number of cancer patients are of advanced age as the incidence of cancer increases with age. In this article, the clinical predictors of toxicity that may help in treatment selection are addressed, as well as mitigators of toxicity. The potential of artificial intelligence to enable further progress in the understanding of the interaction of age and tolerance to radiation is reviewed. The final section reviews the literature on patient-related outcomes for older patients.
