Radiation-induced bladder and rectal complications are recognized complications of intracavitary therapy. In clinical studies the correlation between dose calculated and complications seen are inconsistent. The inconsistency is also present when utilizing the reference points recommended by the ICRU. We attempted to illustrate this inconsistency when looking at the bladder or rectum in intracavitary treatments. If reference points are inconsistent with maximum doses (which directly affect morbidity), their application is dubious.
