Single Fraction Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy After Surgery in Treating Patients With Non-small Cell Lung Cancer

Study Number
Age Group

This trial studies the side effects of single fraction stereotactic body radiation therapy after surgery in treating patients with non-small cell lung cancer. Standard radiation for lung cancer involves delivering small doses of daily radiation for several weeks. However, this technique has resulted in inferior outcomes compared to surgery and is associated with damage to surrounding normal lung. Stereotactic body radiation therapy uses special equipment to position a patient and deliver radiation to tumors with high precision. Giving stereotactic body radiation therapy in fewer treatment sessions (single fraction) may kill tumor cells and cause less damage to normal tissue.
