Radiotherapy for lung cancer, with guest Jeffrey Bogart, MD, on Upstate's The Informed Patient podcast

Study compares treatment frequencies for one type of the disease

The impact of treating a certain lung cancer with once-a-day radiation vs. twice-a-day is explained by radiation oncologist  Jeffrey Bogart, MD, whose research on the topic was recently published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology. Lung cancer remains the leading cause of cancer death in the United States, so efforts to refine treatment and improve survival can make a huge impact. Bogart, a professor and chair of radiation oncology at the Upstate Cancer Center, compared the two treatment regimens for patients with limited-stage small cell lung cancer, meaning the cancer had not spread from the lungs.
