Dr. Vivek Mehta, Radiation Oncologist and Director of the Swedish Cancer Institute’s Center for Advanced Targeted Radiotherapies, recently presented a great webinar on the evolution of radiation oncology for lung cancer, which is becoming more “targeted” in the sense of a tighter focus on the tumor.  In this initial portion of his presentation, he sets the stage by describing some of the older history of radiation therapy and the key strategies for improving outcomes with radiation.

 

Here are the video and audio versions of this podcast, along with the transcript and figures.
