Improvements in radiotherapy technique as well as systemic therapies have increased lung cancer patients' lifespans. However, increasingly commonly, this improved survival translates into a need to irradiate a patient to the thorax multiple times to manage new or recurrent disease. Certainly, re-irradiation is fraught with challenges. But the radiation oncology literature does provide some guidance/suggestions in terms of re-irradiating safely, at least in select patients. This session will increase attendees' knowledge of such clinical situations as well as radiotherapy techniques to employ. The session has been purposely designed so as to leave significant time (15 minutes) for questions by the audience.
