Accelerated partial breast irradiation was shown to be just as effective and safe as whole breast irradiation in early-stage breast cancer patients.

A small trial yielded “dramatic” results with high progression-free and overall survival using SBRT along with erlotinib for patients with stage IV lung cancer.

Children treated for Wilms tumor, a rare kidney cancer, with chest radiation may be at a higher risk for developing breast cancer in adulthood.

In the field of oncology, we are fortunate to possess a vast and ever-expanding trove of knowledge, and we now have a sufficient foundation of knowledge in many cancers to afford ourselves the luxury of striving to seek wisdom as well.

Adding thoracic radiotherapy to chemotherapy and prophylactic cranial irradiation improved 2-year survival in extensive-stage small-cell lung cancer patients.
