  1. The left lobe of lung is ______ because of the heart.
    longer and skinnier
  2. the right lobe of the lung is ____and ____ because of the liver
    shorter and fatter
  3. the right lung has ____lobes, and the right lung has _____lobes.
    • right: 3 lobes
    • left: 2 lobes

    "I only have TWO lobes LEFT"
  4. The upper lobes can tolerate more radiation because:
    The lower lobes carry out most of the respiration
  5. The relevance of the different lobes and sections of the lung for RT is:
    • the prox bronchial tree for SBRT
    • Future lymph tracking
    • future tolerance predictions
  6. The proximal bronchial tree + 2 cm defines the central lung region. It begins __ cm superior to the carina, and it extends to where the ____ enters each lobe the lung.
    The proximal bronchial tree + 2 cm defines the central lung region. It begins 2 cm superior to the carina, and it extends to where the bronchus enters the each lobe of lung.



    *May also be called the main bronchus
  7. When and why is prox bronchial tree used
    • For Lung SBRT patients:
    •  Pts with centrally located lung tumors treated with SBRT suffered excessive toxicity
  8. Histology and cell types:
    • Small Cell:(18-20%)
    •  Oat Cell
    • Mixed oat and large cell

    •  Non-Small Cell
    • Adeno(most common) 40-50%
    • Squamous (2nd most common)
  9. Staging Small Cell
    • TNM most widely used
    • Limited(fits into a reasonable RT field)
    • Extensive (doesn't fit into a reasonable RT field)
  10. Staging Non-Small Cell
    • TNM
    • T1 <3 cm
    • T2   >3<7 cm
    • T3    >7 cm, carina not involved
    • T4 with great invasion (surgery not possible)
  11. Recommended and Required imaging
    • Required imaging:
    • CT of the chest and upper abdomen

    • Recommended Imaging:
    • PET for TNM staging
  12. 3D Sim-patient position
    supine, arms above head, vacloc recommended
  13. conventional sim
    based on anatomic landmarks
