Lung Cancer - Virtual Special Issuepro logo

The American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) has published a new guideline on radiotherapy in locally advanced non-small cell lung cancer. The guideline cites 35 years of data to help guide current treatment and future research. Read two executive summaries published in in Practical Radiation Oncology (PRO), ASTRO’s clinical practice journal. In addition, we have gathered other key articles on lung cancer treatment that the journal has published in recent years to bring you a “virtual special issue” on this important topic.
