Date:7/6/2011

perable Non Small-Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) Patients," sponsored by Varian Medical Systems.  In this symposium, attended by more than 150 lung cancer clinicians, surgeons and radiation oncologists reported on the latest techniques for treating high-risk early stage lung cancer using either surgical approaches or non-invasive radiosurgery, depending on a patient's clinical characteristics and risk profile.

Professor Harvey Pass of the New York University Medical Center presented his view of state-of-the-art approaches to tackling early-stage lung cancer, detailing results of local tumor control after two and three years in non-operable patients. Dr. Pass also outlined the latest results of a small phase-2 study that Dr. Robert Timmerman of the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, and Dr. Pass are leading to investigate whether SBRT is suitable for operable patients.

Dr. Bryan Meyers, a thoracic surgeon, and Dr. Jeff Bradley, a radiation oncologist, both from the Washington School of Medicine in St. Louis, detailed several cases involving high-risk early-stage lung cancer patients at their center, outlining how they collaborate as a multi-disciplinary team to assess a patient's risk profile in order to arrive at a treatment recommendation on whether the patient should receive SBRT or surgery.  

Surgeon Dr. Marinus Paul and radiation oncologist Professor Suresh Senan from VU University Medical Center also presented the benefits of collaboration between thoracic surgery and radiation oncology professionals to determine the optimum treatment for lung cancer patients.
