br PERSPECTIVES br COMPETENCY IN PATIENT CARE AND PROCEDURAL
COMPETENCY IN PATIENT CARE AND PROCEDURAL OUTCOMES: Despite the competing risks of cancer-related death, patients with locally advanced NSCLC may benefit from reduction of cardiac radiation dose, preventive post-radiotherapy cardiac care, and earlier recognition and treatment of cardiovascular events.
TRANSLATIONAL OUTLOOK: Prospective studies are needed to assess the effect of combined cardiac risk stratification, cardiac radiation dose reduction techniques, and post-radiotherapy preventive care on survival and quality of life in patients with lung cancer.
