SBRT (Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy)
SBRT (Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy) is a method of radiosurgery recently developed for Lung, GI and other tumors. It uses high doses of radiation delivered in fewer fractions than in conventional radiation therapy. An advanced treatment planning system permits precise targeting from many angles. As with other advances in radiation treatment, it allows high doses of radiation to be delivered to tumor tissue while reducing radiation damage to healthy tissue.
SBRT (Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy is a noninvasive and nonsurgical treatment for localized lung caners and other localized tumors.
