Featured Review © © Raycat / Getty Images / iStockClinical outcomes for patients with pancreatic adenocarcinoma (PAC) remain dismal. Radiation therapy has historically been a central component in the treatment of pancreatic adenocarcinoma; however, the role of radiation therapy has been called into question based on conflicting results. In this article, William A. Hall and Karyn A. Goodman present an overview of the rationale for radiation therapy in pancreatic adenocarcinoma and a summary of emerging clinical data and future directions to improve outcomes in this devastating malignancy.
