abstract

  • Tumor motion due to respiration during radiation therapy for non-small cell lung cancer is a significant problem. This article reports on two techniques used to control tumor motion: respiratory gating and the deep inspiration breath hold technique. This technique was implemented in 40 patients without significant difficulties and there are encouraging clinical outcomes.
