  • AIMS To study various prognostic factors affecting outcome and to validate Radiation Therapy Oncology Group recursive partitioning analysis (RPA) class in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) with brain metastases treated with short-course accelerated radiotherapy (SCAR). MATERIALS AND METHODS The case records of 100 patients with NSCLC consecutively treated at Tata Memorial Hospital from August 2006 to August 2009 were studied for various patient, tumour and treatment-related prognostic… CONTINUE READING
