abstract

  • WR, WR+ Cs-131, or SBRT are all excellent treatment options for patients with early stage non-small cell lung cancer that are not candidates for lobectomy. For high risk WRs, we favor use of Cesim-131 brachytherapy. Until a prospective randomized comparative study is done to evaluate the best treatment approach for early stage NSCLC, treatment selection should be based on a multidisciplinary team approach.
