Stereotactic Ablative Radiotherapy (SABR)
By admin on
Sterotactic Ablative Radiotherapy (SABR) pronounced “SABER” involves the administration of very focused radiation doses to an isolated tumor or tumors within the body, with the goal of complete tumor cell kill in the treated area. SBRT is an image-based treatment using a high dose of radiotherapy with pinpoint accuracy in three to five sessions.
Our new SABR systems image, localize and shape radiation for small to moderate-sized tumors. SBRT also uses highly enhanced CT image guidance preceding each treatment to provide optimal treatment accuracy. In some cases, SABR reduces treatment duration from thirty visits to as few as one to five.
