Micro-Abstract The present study aimed to create a survival score for patients requiring palliative irradiation for locally advanced lung cancer to facilitate personalized treatment. Using 3 prognostic factors, 3 groups were designed with a 6-month survival rate of 13%, 47%, and 82%, respectively. This new score will enable physicians to estimate the remaining lifespan of lung cancer patients requiring palliative local irradiation.
