In a randomized phase III trial (RTOG 1308), photon versus proton chemoradiotherapy will be compared for their impact to improve overall survival. A total of 560 inoperable stage II–IIIB NSCLC patients are being planned to be enrolled with 70 Gy using either modality, besides the option to decrease to as low as 60 Gy if the dose constraints to the organs at risk cannot be met [113]. Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy The principles and practice of stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) or stereotactic ablative body radiotherapy (SABR) have been generated from the knowledge and experience from cranial stereotactic radiosurgery.

5 % local control and no grade 4–5 toxicity [110]. These promising results were supported by Oshiro et al. [111]. Using concomitant platinum-based chemotherapy with curative intent, Sejpal et al. found that higher doses of proton radiation than 3D-CRT or IMRT could be delivered with a lower risk of esophagitis and pneumonitis [112].
