Stereotactic ablative radiation (SBRT) for early stage lung cancer is a standard treatment. Join Dr. Shahed Badiyan and Dr. David Palma as they discuss four scenarios that are particularly challenging for the delivery of SBRT for lung cancer: reirradiation, a patient with interstitial lung disease, ultracentral tumor location, and oligometastatic lung cancer. We will present representative cases and discuss how we would treat patients in these challenging situations and the published data supporting our decisions.
This activity is designed to meet the educational needs of researchers and healthcare professionals who diagnose and treat patients with lung cancer including medical oncologists, thoracic surgeons, radiation oncologists, radiologists, pathologists, advanced practice nurses and physician assistants.
Upon completion of this activity, the participants should be able to: 
  • Understand the literature describing patient outcomes after SBRT for oligometastatic disease and lung SBRT reirradiation for NSCLC.
  • Understand the literature, and when not to recommend lung SBRT for patients with interstitial lung disease.
  • Understand the literature and how best to prescribe SBRT for patients with ultracentral early stage lung cancers.
