Stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) for lung cancer
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."
Radiation Treatment for Lung Cancer
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.

Moving lung tumor during imaging (radiation therapy)
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.

New Treatment for Early Stage Lung 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.

Will Lung Cancer Treatment Affect Other Organs?
Dr. Hanson explains that chemotherapy treatment for lung cancer can often affect other organs, such as the blood organ, bone marrow, and nerves. Patients that undergo treatment through radiation can also expect that organs hit by the radiation could suffer damage. David S. Hanson, MD, FACP: Oftentimes patients under treatment for lung cancer are concerned about the effects their therapy may have on their body and this is entirely appropriate. Patients who receive chemotherapy for lung cancer can expect that there may damage done to other organs. The most common is the blood organ or the bone marrow and that is because the chemotherapy arrest the growth of those cells, which may cause anemia, which is a low grade blood count and can cause weakness and fatigue or low white cell counts, which can predispose a person to infection or low platelet counts, which may predispose to bleeding. For that reason, during the course of treatment, your doctor will be monitoring your blood counts and likely adjusting your chemotherapy should there be major abnormalities that develop. There are other organs that are also at risk for damage during lung cancer treatment. The most common concern are the nerves. The common chemotherapy that works very well for lung cancer can cause numbness and tingling to come in the hands and feet, that this does not occur for all patients but you and your physician will be monitoring carefully for this and probably make adjustments in your treatment should such damage occur. Many times, if that damage is detected early it can be reversed. There are other organs that are at risk for damage from chemotherapy, which include the liver and the kidneys. The doctor will obtain blood test generally to determine whether or not these organs are functioning normally and if they are not, make adjustments in your treatment. The important thing to know is that you and your doctor will be working as a team to look at the side effects of your treatment and make plans about modifying your treatment to respect those side effects that develop. Finally, there are times when patients must have radiation treatment as a part of their lung cancer treatment plan and radiation can do damage to the organs at which it is end. For that reason your radiation oncologist will make a very careful treatment plan, talk with you about what tissues might be at risk for damage and list out for you those things that you and he or she can do to manage those side effects. Commonly, there may be a skin burn that is apparent on the skin and the area that is given radiation. Proper treatment of the skin can control the symptoms from that irritation and make it far less of a difficult thing to manage than if its not attended too properly. David S. Hanson, MD practices oncology and internal medicine in Baton Rouge and Zachary, Louisiana. Dr. Hanson graduated with an MD 27 years ago.

Walter J. Curran, Jr., MD, FACR, associate vice president of cancer, Woodruff Health Sciences Center, executive director, Winship Cancer Institute, Lawrence W. Davis Chair of Radiation Oncology, Emory University, discusses radiation therapy dose for the treatment of patients with lung cancer. Curran explains how patients were randomized between standard dose radiation and a dose 22% higher. He and his team hoped for a survival improvement with the group of patients receiving the higher dose. However, it was found that the latter group was associated with a worse survival than the group receiving the standard dose. The results led Curran and his colleagues to further consider planning the delivery of radiation and conduct future trials.

Stronger Than Lung Cancer, With Memorial Cancer Institute
When David experienced shortness of breath and a gurgling in his chest, he went to see Luis Raez, MD, at Memorial Cancer Institute. David was diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer. Dr. Raez and the multidisciplinary team at Memorial stabilized him and treated his cancer with chemotherapy for three years. In the fourth year of his fight with cancer, the first targeted therapy medication for lung cancer came on the market. The medications have improved his quality of life for several years. When cancer was detected in his brain, his Memorial team successfully treated it with pinpoint accuracy using CyberKnife stereotactic radiation treatments. Through it all David has been stronger than lung cancer, with Memorial on his side. Learn more about lung cancer treatment at Memorial at MHS.net/LungCancer.
