    With the development of radiation technology, stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) has been widely used in early stage non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). It is not only the standard therapy for medically inoperable early-stage NSCLC, but also one of the therapies for operable early-stage...
