SABR for Medically Operable Stage I
Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer
This course is available from June 16, 2016 through 11:59 p.m. Eastern time on June 16, 2019.
Stereotactic ablative radiotherapy (SABR) is the new standard of care for medically inoperable Stage I non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). For medically operable Stage I NSCLC, surgery remains the standard of care. Recent studies have shown an emerging role for SABR as a treatment option for medically operable NSCLC patients. There may be benefits for using a less invasive therapy such as SABR compared to surgery for the treatment of medically operable Stage I NSCLC. However, there are risks and toxicity associated with SABR treatment, and no randomized studies comparing SABR vs surgery for medical operable Stage I NSCLC have been completed. This module includes a discussion describing the rationale for SABR to treat stage I NSCLC and debates the benefits and risks of SABR vs surgery for the medically operable Stage I NSCLC.
This program is designed to meet the needs of radiation oncologists, surgeons, medical physicists, residents-in-training and healthcare professionals with interest in learning about SABR for the treatment of medically operable Stage I NSCLCs.
