Howard (Jack) West, MD, Associate Clinical Professor, Medical Oncology, Executive Director, Employer Services, Founder, President and CEO of GRACE

Here's the second half of the presentation by Dr. Gerard Silvestri, expert pulmonologist and critical care specialist at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, on pulmonary complications from lung cancer treatment.  In this part, he briefly covers the side effects of some systemic targeted therapies used as a treatment for lung cancer, then covers the important topic of radiation pneumonitis in some detail.

Here is the podcast in video and audio versions, along with the transcript and figures.

I hope this program is helpful. We'll be moving on to our next webinar, with Dr. Vivek Mehta covering refinements in increasingly targeted radiation therapy approaches for lung cancer, in the next few weeks.
