  • Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer related mortality in the United States. The overall 5 year survival rate is around 15-20%.
  • Typical radiation dose of 60Gy
  • What is Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy:
  • 5 yr survival numbers updated at ASCO 2006, 74% OS for all Stage I operable patients
  • None of the patients received ctx.Staging is old AJCCT1 < 3cmT2 <5cm

Stereotactic Radiosurgery for Lung Cancer Stereotactic Radiosurgery for Lung Cancer Presentation Transcript

  • Robert Sinha, M.D. Radiation Oncologist Western Radiation OncolgyDorothy Schneider Cancer Center
  •  Incidence: Estimated 226,160 new cases in 2012 Mortality: Estimated 160,340 deaths in 2012
  • Stage TNM 5-yr OS Literature** IA-IB T1-T2N0M0 60-80% IIA-IIB T1-T2N1M0 25-50% IIIA T3N0-N1 or T1- 10-40% 3N2 IIIB Any T4 or any N3 5% IV M1=distant mets <5%**John D. Minna, Neoplasms of the Lung, in Harrison’s Principles of Internal Medicine, pt. 5§ 75, at 506-515 (Dennis L. Kasper, M.D. et al., eds, 16th ed 2005).Survival: Only 15-20% of all lung cancer patients (all stages) willbe alive 5 years after dx
  •  Palliation of symptoms for advanced disease  Brain and bone mets, local symptoms Curative Intent in Stage IIIA and IIIB disease  5 year survival rates of 10 to 30% Curative Intent for medically inoperable patients  Local control with traditional radiotherapy: 25-30%%  New techniques like SBRT have local control ~ 90%
  • Step 1: Conventional simulator: diagnostic quality xrays to design fields Step 2: Fabricate custom cerrobend blocks Step 3: Perform Dose CalculationsTypical radiationportal for lung cancer Step 4: Treat patient on linac with mounted blocks
  •  CAT scan based planning 3 Dimensional conformal Therapy IMRT – Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy IGRT – Image Guided Therapy
  • • Accuracy• Less side effects – normal tissue sparing• Dose escalation (60Gy to 70-74Gy)
  •  Target definition Target Motion  Respiratory motion/tracking Normal tissue tolerance/Increasing dose  Conventional XRT limited to 70Gy Duration of therapy  6 to 7 weeks for conventional therapy is difficult for medically inoperable patients
  • Stereotactic Body Radiosurgery (SBRT): The Ultimate “Targeted Therapy” Highly focused radiation concentrated on the tumor – with sub-millimeter accuracy Continuous tumor tracking – via respiratory gating Typically 5 or less treatments– high dose per treatment Biologic Equivalent doses greater than 120Gy at 2Gy/fx
  • Treatment Planning PET-CT scans Time of Flight PET/CT
  • 14 Institutions in Japan from 1993 to 20033yr OS 69% when BED>100 Gy3yr OS for “operable” patients = 81% when BED> 100

  • DEMOGRAPHICS & HISTOLOGY 76 yo Female, 1 month non-productive cough, mass on CXR CT and PET show no other areas of disease Histology: Poorly differentiated non-small cell lung carcinoma with squamous features . PET/CT staged as cT1N0M0 stage grouping IACLINICAL HISTORY: Referred by: Pulmonologist Previous Treatment: None Multiple medical co-morbidities (FEV1=1.12)
  • PreOp CT and Fiducial Placement: 1.0 mm CT slices with 1.5x2.0x2.1 cm tumor4 fiducials are placed within and near the tumor
  • NSCLC Left Upper LungTREATMENT PLANNING:• Axial, sagittal and coronal planning images showing the tumor, lung parenchyma and isodose curves TREATMENT DETAILS: • Rx Dose & Isodose: 60 Gy to 71%, 3 fractions QOD. • Tumor volume = 13.85 cc • Conformity Index (PIV/TV) = 1.37
  • RESULTS:• Near CR on CT 12 weeks post-treatment, PET negative at 3 months• PFTs unchanged at 3 months• Patient is NED at 3 years 3 months post Pre-treatment treatment
  • Demographics:• 67 yo s/p GTR resection 18 months prior, CAD & FEV1=1.13• Patient refused surgery after previous RML surgery
  •  Rx 54 Gy to 85% isodose in 3 fractionsPre-Treatment 1 mo post-CK 2 mo post-CK 6 mo post-CK• Stable PFT’s & negative PET/CT >24 months afterSBRT

  •  Systemic therapies are improving, prolonging survival But, systemic therapy still can’t durably control GROSS DISEASE (perhaps never will) Residual disease can “re-seed” SBRT: A minimally toxic yet potent local therapy to consolidate all gross disease
  •  SBRT is emerging as the new “standard of care” for medically inoperable early stage NSCLC patients Early data suggest that it may also achieve high local control and survival rates in operable patients SBRT is a promising treatment modality for patients with oligiometastatic dz to the lung.
  •  Randomized comparison of Surgery vs SABR for operable patients  ACOSOG Z4099/RTOG 1021 – Wedge vs SABR  STARS Trial – Lobectomy vs SABR for Stage I Can adjuvant systemic therapy improve outcomes for early stage inoperable patients?  CALGB/RTOG – SABR +/- chemo for 2-5cm T1 tumors
