Radiation therapy uses high-energy rays or particles to kill cancer cells. It can be given along with chemotherapy or after chemo has been completed. “Our goal is always to be very accurate and precise with our treatment and that and, and, and how we do that and how we target cancer cells has changed a lot in the last several decades,” says Dr. Arie Dosoretz, a radiation oncologist on the medical staff of Lee Memorial Health System. Radiation therapy can be particularly effective for treating early lung cancer. Stage one lung cancer involves small nodules in the lung that are typically somewhere between one to two centimeters in size. “And we know that if we can get a big dose of radiation to these spots we have a much better chance of controlling them,” says Dr. Arie Dosoretz. A treatment called stereotactic radiation therapy uses several smaller beams that are aimed at the tumor from different angles. Going smaller can be better smarter in many ways. Patients have a limit to radiation exposure. Fewer applications that are fine-tuned give doctors room to come back again if needed. Giving patients additional options for future recurrence. “We’re able to treat these lesions somewhere between three to five treatments to the lung and spare virtually all normal tissue uh and then very effectively control the tumor, too,” says Dr. Arie Dosoretz. Early results of this type of radiation treatment have been very promising, with a low risk of complications. It is also being studied for tumors that have spread to other parts of the body, such as the bones or liver.

James J. Urbanic, MD, a radiation oncologist, and Carnell J. Hampton, PhD, a physicist at the Comprehensive Cancer Center at Wake Forest Baptist Health, use the most advanced linear accelerator to treat lung cancer. The Elekta Axesse™ image guided linear accelerator offers highly-accurate targeting of tumors and lesions virtually anywhere in the body. Typically requiring only one to five treatments, it achieves excellent results in fewer treatments than required by standard radiotherapy. Radiation therapy with these techniques is a treatment modality for a wide range of cancers including lung, prostate, head and neck, esophageal, spinal cord, pancreatic, liver metastases, recurrent gynecologic cancers, bone metastasis and adrenal cancer.

Learn more about this clinical trial http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT00840749 Patients who cannot have surgery for an early stage lung cancer may now benefit from a new radiation therapy technology called stereotactic radiation therapy (STARS). This treatment can typically be given in 3 or 4 days as opposed to the 5 or 6 weeks with conventional radiation therapy. For patients who CAN have surgery, an operation that removes the lobe of the lung containing the cancer and lymph nodes is the current standard of care. Because of the good results seen so far with stereotactic radiation therapy, it is now being considered as an alternative to surgery for patient who are fit enough to have surgery. Jack Roth, M.D., in the thoracic surgery department at MD Anderson Cancer Center, discusses this clinical trial (STARS) that compares stereotactic radiation therapy with traditional surgery.

Stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT), also called stereotactic ablative radiotherapy (SABR), is a type of radiation therapy in which a few very high doses of radiation are delivered to small, well-defined tumors. The goal is to deliver a radiation dose that is high enough to kill the cancer while minimizing exposure to surrounding healthy organs. Barbara Pool is one of six lung cancer patients per day who go through stereotactic body radiation therapy and she is the 1000th patient to receive this type of radiation at MD Anderson. Joe Chang, M.D., Ph.D., associate professor in the Department of Radiation Oncology, oversaw Pool's SRBT treatment. "We only received treatment Monday through Thursday and it went by pretty fast," Staggs says. "The treatment lasted less than an hour each day."

Tomorrow's Technology to Beat Cancer Today" www.PhoenixCyberknife.com http://phoenixcyberknifecenter.com/Physicians.html At Phoenix Cyberknife and Radiation Oncology center we remove lung tumors with surgical precision - within a millimeter - without any cutting, no surgery, no pain, no hospital stay, with limited to no side effects. The challenge with Lung Tumors whether it be a primary or metastatic tumor, is that lung tumors move due to natural breathing. Only Phoenix Cyberknife and Radiation Oncology Center has the two most advanced Radiation Technologies, not only in Arizona but the entire country. Cyberknife VSI and Truebeam STx with Novalis ExacTrac detect, track, follow movement and image throughout treatment to verify we are removing the tumor with sub-millimeter accuracy, and quickly. Tumors come in all shapes, sizes and locations, and due to a patients age, condition and important factors such as co-morbidities, there is not one technology that treats all tumors the best. This is why the Board Certified Team of Radiation Oncologists, led by John Kresl, MD, PhD, FACRO, developed our center with the two most advanced technologies to provide patients the ultimate options for their unique condition. We encourage patients to explore all their options for treatment and to call us for a consult to understand if Cyberknife VSI or Truebeam STx is right for you. 602-441-3845 www.PhoenixCyberknife.com

A lung tumor is challenging to treat with radiation therapy (http://www.uihealthcare.org/radiation-therapy/) as it moves in different directions as you breathe. Our clinic at University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics uses 4D CT scans with CBCT and 3D imaging technology to build a complete movie of the whole lung and the tumor as you breathe. This is then added to a timed system that only turns the radiation beam on when the tumor is in the target area, minimizing the radiation dose to the normal lung.

Lung cancer, also known as carcinoma of the lung or pulmonary carcinoma, is a malignant lung tumor characterized by uncontrolled cell growth in tissues of the lung. If left untreated, this growth can spread beyond the lung by process of metastasis into nearby tissue or other parts of the body. Most cancers that start in the lung, known as primary lung cancers, are carcinomas that derive from epithelial cells. The main primary types are small-cell lung carcinoma (SCLC) and non-small-cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC). The most common symptoms are coughing (including coughing up blood), weight loss, shortness of breath, and chest pains. https://goo.gl/HZRxv9 https://goo.gl/5u8RXg https://goo.gl/GXEfKc https://goo.gl/VCttU9 http://goo.gl/UreqjX
