I don't know how many genetic markers there are.  EGFR, ALK & KRAS are the ones I see most.  What exactly did the test say?   Oh and search for threads here started by Gpawelski.   It may be what his PHD is in.

There are several types of targeted radiation therapies.  Gamma knife, Cyberknife, imrt and I others I don't remember.  Explore these threads.  There is much good info here.
