Mapping Tumor Position During Lung Function Improves Radiation Therapy for Lung Cancer

Mapping Tumor Position During Lung Function Improves Radiation Therapy for Lung Cancer

A new clinical trial aims to apply advanced image analysis techniques to 4D CT scans. Already a standard step in targeting lung cancer radiotherapy, the trial seeks to use the scans map areas of lung function without additional testing.

Concomitant Letrozole With Adjuvant Breast Radiotherapy Safe

With long-term follow-up, letrozole can be safely administered concomitantly with adjuvant breast radiotherapy in postmenopausal patients with stage 1 to 2 breast cancer.
