Abstract

Radiation therapy plays an important role in the treatment of patients with unresectable non-small cell lung cancer. Local control rates with past radiation therapy techniques have been poor, in the range of 10% to 15%. Recent advances in dose planning and delivery, as well as radiation biology, offer the promise of improved control and better protection of dose limiting normal tissues.
