Summary of "Characterization of Chest Wall Toxicity during Long Term Follow Up after Thoracic Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy."

Chest wall (CW) pain and rib fractures are frequently diagnosed following stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) for malignant lung tumors. We hypothesize that multiple risk factors including bone mineral density (BMD) are associated with CW toxicity and that CW pain and rib fractures often evolve into chronic clinical problems.
