Somehow I posted the last podcast from Dr. Mehta’s presentation on New Developments in Radiation Oncology for Lung Cancer but overlooked part 5 that should have preceded it. Here’s that longer portion that covers several new advances in the technologies now being incorporated into radiation therapy for lung cancer.

Here’s the video and audio versions of his podcast, along with the associated transcript and figures.

I hope this coverage of new technologies is interesting and helpful.

    Dr West says:

    I’m afraid that without being directly involved, without seeing the images or knowing the details of her case, we can’t say what this represents or what to do. Her doctor(s) would need to guide any further workup. It may be helpful to get a biopsy by bronchoscopy, perhaps, or just try treating with antibiotics to see if it improves.

    Alternatively, in the weeks after radiation, especially if combined with chemotherapy, you can see pneumonitis, an inflammation of the lung in the area of the radiation that can get better on its own or may potentially have its resolution accelerated by steroids.

    Good luck.
