Results of controlled clinical trials of the effect of the total dose and fractionation on outcome in patients with non-small cell lung cancer irradiated with the palliative intent were shown. Detailed analysis of results proved usefulness of hypofractionation (1, 2 or 5 fractions) in majority of patients. Conventional fractionation and relatively higher radiation dose (40-50Gy in 15-25 fractions) should be considered in good performance status patients.
