Radiation modality and technique will be determined at the discretion of the treating radiation oncologist.
Administered alongside pembrolizumab every 3 weeks for 6 cycles per institutional standard of care. For non-squamous, the standard chemotherapy option of choice is carboplatin and pemetrexed. For squamous cell carcinoma, the chemotherapy used would be carboplatin and paclitaxel or nab-paclitaxel
