The management of non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) varies according to stage. Surgical resection is reserved for operable patients with early-stage NSCLC, while high-dose target radiation—stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT)—is reserved for patients whose comor-bidities prohibit them from a major surgical procedure. The treatment of locally advanced NSCLC (LA-NSCLC) is stratified according to resectability. Those with resectable disease may require additional treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation, while patients with un-resectable disease will require definitive chemoradiation therapy with adjuvant durvalumab. Patients with limited metastatic disease benefit from the combination of SBRT and systemic therapy.
