Pulmonary Interstitial Lymphography in Early Stage Lung Cancer
The stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) procedure is an emerging alternative to the
standard treatment for early stage non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), typically lobectomy
with lymphadenectomy. This procedure (lobectomy) does not fulfill the medical need as many
patients are poor operative candidates or decline surgery.
This study assesses the feasibility of stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) as a tool
to produce therapeutically useful computed tomography (CT) scans, using standard
water-soluble iodinated compounds as the contrast agents.
Stanford is currently not accepting patients for this trial.
