Helen Chen, MD – Speaker Bio
  • Topic Info: Stereotactic radiotherapy is used to treat tumors in the lung without having to make an opening in the skin. The treatment machine directs beams of high-dose radiation directly to the area in the lung that needs to be treated. The radiation beams are silent and invisible.

    Radiotherapy can play a pivotal role in the treatment of lung cancer in all stages and can result in long-term curative outcomes for patients.

    Listen in as Helen Chen, MD explains how Stereotactic radiotherapy is used to help treat lung cancer.
