Three patients with early-stage T1N0M0 non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) who had medical contraindications for standard surgical resection were treated with CT-guided percutaneous implantation of (103)Pd seeds. The technique was proven safe in this small subset of patients without any complications related to the procedure or during short-term follow-up.
