A survey was performed on the radiotherapy practice of malignant pleural mesothelioma in The Netherlands and Belgium in 2002. Thirty-eight out of 47 centres (81%) responded. Prophylactic radiotherapy to intervention sites is given by 32/38 (84%) centres, with all centres offering palliative radiation. For both prophylactic and palliative indications, all centres use hypo-fractionated schedules. The present study shows that in the radiotherapy community in The Netherlands and in Belgium, a de facto consensus exists that both prophylactic and symptomatic radiotherapy to intervention sites of malignant pleural mesothelioma are effective and that hypo-fractionated schedules should be used.
