Thomas A. Hensing, MD, co-director of the Thoracic Oncology Program at NorthShore University HealthSystem, discusses the management of patients with stage III non—small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).

Hensing says that in order to avoid the one-size-fits-all approach that has plagued stage IV disease management, new technology and novel therapeutics need to be adopted.

One of these technologies is proton-beam radiotherapy, but the problem is that it is expensive and there is limited access for patients, says Hensing.
