Overall Status
This is a research study to determine if hypofractionated image guided radiation therapy (hypoIGRT) with proton therapy is a good way to treat early stage lung tumors for patients who will not have surgery. HypoIGRT delivers higher daily doses of radiation over a shorter period of time compared with conventional radiation. This is thought to deliver a more lethal dose of radiation to the tumor and is more convenient with treatment being completed within 2-3 weeks compared to the typical 7-8 week course of conventional radiotherapy.
