The objective of this study is to analyze the utilization of 8 Gy in 1 fraction for treatment of multiple myeloma bone lesions. The National Cancer Database was used to identify patients with multiple myeloma treated with palliative radiation therapy for painful bony lesions. Only 2.4% of patients received 8 Gy in 1 fraction over the 10-year period. This approach remains underutilized at this time.
