PURPOSE To investigate pulmonary function test (PFT) results and arterial blood gas changes (complete PFT) following stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) and to see whether baseline PFT correlates with lung toxicity and overall survival in medically inoperable patients receiving SBRT for early stage, peripheral, non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). METHODS AND MATERIALS During the 2-year follow-up, PFT data were collected for patients with T1-T2N0M0 peripheral NSCLC who received… CONTINUE READING
