Role for Proton Therapy in Locally Advanced Non–Small-Cell Lung Cancer?

October 24, 2017

This video reviews results of a randomized trial comparing intensity modulated radiation therapy vs passively scattered proton therapy for locally advanced non–small-cell lung cancer.

In this video, Zhongxing Liao, MD, of MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas, reviews results of a randomized trial that compared intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) vs passively scattered proton therapy in patients with locally advanced non–small-cell lung cancer.

Liao gave a presentation on this topic earlier this year at the 2017 Multidisciplinary Thoracic Cancers Symposium.
