Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy
Radiation Therapy (SBRT) is a treatment for the body that is a specially designed coordinate-system
which is used for the exact localization of the tumors in the body in
order to treat it with limited but highly precise treatment fields.
SBRT involves the delivery of a single high dose radiation treatment or
a few fractionated radiation treatments (usually up to 5 treatments).
A high potent biological dose of radiation is delivered to the tumor,
improving the cure rates for the tumor, in a manner previously not achievable
by standard conventional radiation therapy.
This specialized form of radiation involves the use of multiple radiation
beam angles, expert Radiation Oncologists specialized in this technique
are able to safely deliver high doses of radiation, with very sharp dose
gradient outside the tumor and into the surrounding normal tissue.
