I.e. radiation therapy to the chest, mediastinum, supraclavicula fossae or breast. See also under other radiation therapy headings including SBRT.

Reviews at PMID 10682772, 12932614, 23473474, 23583253, 23876528, 23972736. Chemotherapy sensitizes the lung to the effects of radiation (PMID 12118569) and vice versa. Incidence of radiation pneumonitis following reirradiation may be greater than for 'first-hand' irradiation (PMID: 25841506)
