Prediction of radiation pneumonitis following high-dose thoracic radiation therapy by 3 Gy/fraction for non-small cell lung cancer: analysis of clinical and dosimetric factors.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE This study was undertaken to identify the factors predictive of radiation pneumonitis (RP) in 69 non-small cell lung cancer patients treated with thoracic radiation therapy only by 3 Gy fractions. METHODS A total of 69 patients who received only RT in daily 3 Gy were included in this study. Grade > or =3 RP was defined as an RP event. The… (More)
