Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT)

  • Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT) is a technologically advanced treatment that enables highly precise targeting of radiation to attack cancer. The total dose of radiation can be delivered in a single treatment, or it may be divided into a series of doses to be given over the course of one or two weeks.

    SBRT uses multiple high-energy x-ray beams that can be programmed to conform to the shape of a defined target, such as a tumor. The technology enables your radiation oncologist to focus the radiation so that it matches the shape of the tumor. This advanced level of accuracy helps speed the process of controlling your cancer while also minimizing damage to surrounding healthy tissue and organs.

    SBRT is provided on an outpatient basis and can be used to treat various types of cancer including lung, liver, kidney, pancreas and prostate.
