      To pursue personalized cancer care, it is important to determine tumor response during treatment and associate these with outcomes. Previously published literature reported that adenocarcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma have different treatment response and outcome. Therefore, the aim of this study is to examine the prognostic value of volumetric changes of the primary tumor measured on Cone Beam-CT (CBCT) during radiotherapy for locally advanced NSCLC patients treated with concurrent chemoradiation (CCRT).

      394 NSCLC-patients treated with CCRT between 2007-2013 were included. To determine GTV during treatment, deformable image registration of the planning-CT to all CBCTs was performed. To assess the association of volumetric changes of the gross tumor volume (GTV) with overall survival (OS), progression free survival (PFS) and local regional control (LRC), multivariate cox regression analyses were performed, accounting for potential confounders. Furthermore, the entire group was stratified based on adenocarcinoma and non-adenocarcinoma and an additional log rank and multivariate cox regression analysis based on pathology was performed.

      In patients with adenocarcinoma, GTV reduction during CCRT was significantly associated with worse OS (HR=1.55, Figure 1). GTV reduction was not significantly associated with PFS and LRC in either subgroup. For the entire group no significant association was found between GTV volume change and OS, PFS or LRC.figure1_wclcabstract2018.jpg

      Surprisingly, no associations between GTV changes and outcomes were found for the entire treatment group. In patients with adenocarcinoma, GTV changes during concurrent chemoradiaton measured on CBCT were a significant predictor for OS.
