· The difference of the treatment results between 2D and 3D brachytherapy was analyzed.
· The rectum D2cc was significantly lower in the IGBT group compared with the 2D group.
· Local control rates tended to be better in the IGBT group than in the 2D group.
· The incidence of rectal complications tended to be lower in the IGBT group.
