    Abstract
    Purpose: Tumor motion is a major challenge in stereotactic ablative body radiotherapy (SABR) for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), causing excessive irradiation to compensate for this motion. Real-time tumor tracking with a magnetic resonance imaging-guided linear accelerator (MR-Linac) could address this problem. This study aimed to assess the effects and advantages of MR-Linac in SABR for the treatment of lung tumors.

    Methods: Overall, 41 patients with NSCLC treated with SABR using MR-Linac between March 2019 and December 2021 were included. For comparison, 40 patients treated with SABR using computed tomography-based modalities were also enrolled. The SABR dose ranged from 48 to 60 Gy in 3-5 fractions. The primary endpoint was a lower radiation volume compared to CT-based SABR. The secondary endpoint was the local control rate of SABR using the MR-Linac.

    Results: The median follow-up time was 19 months (range: 3-105 months). There was no significant difference in the gross tumor volume between the MR and CT groups (7.1 ± 9.3 cm3 vs 8.0 ± 6.8 cm3, p = 0.643), but the planning target volume was significantly smaller in the MR group (20.8 ± 18.8 cm3 vs 34.1 ± 22.9 cm3, p = 0.005). The 1-year local control rates for the MR and CT groups were 92.1 and 75.4%, respectively (p = 0.07), and the 1-year overall survival rates were 87.4 and 87.0%, respectively (p = 0.30).

    Conclusion: Lung SABR with MR-Linac can reduce the radiation field without compromising the local control rate. Further follow-up is needed to assess the long-term effects.
