Robert D. Timmerman; Hiran C. Fernando

Seminars in Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery. 2013;25(1):8-13.

Abstract

Stereotactic ablative radiotherapy, also known as stereotactic body radiation therapy, has been developed as an innovative therapy for stage I non-small cell lung cancer and has now emerged as a standard treatment option for medically inoperable patients through careful analysis using prospective multi-institutional trials. We review and update the evidence for use of stereotactic ablative radiotherapy in medically inoperable patients with stage I lung cancer, and its possible extension of use to operable patients, from the perspectives of an experienced radiation oncologist and a thoracic surgeon. © 2013 Elsevier Inc.
