Predictors of Radiation Esophagitis in Locally Advanced Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer with Modern Radiation Therapy Planning

      Radiation esophagitis (RE) is major side effect of concurrent chemoradiation (cCRT) for locally advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Advances in radiation technology allow for better esophageal sparing, potentially affording opportunities to reduce RE without compromising outcomes. Existing studies on RE largely do not include patients treated using intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT). In this study, we aimed to determine RE frequency and predictors with modern radiation planning.
