Stereotactic Radiosurgery

Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS) and stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) utilizes high doses of radiation that are precisely delivered to the targeted areas minimizing radiation exposure to nearby healthy tissue. The most common tumors treated with SRS and SBRT are small solitary tumors located in the brain, spine, lung and liver.

Since SRS and SBRT deliver much higher single daily doses of radiation, the daily treatment times can be much longer (30-60 minutes) compared to conventional therapy. With the higher daily dose required with SRS and SBRT, the total course length is much shorter (1-7 days) compared to conventional radiation therapy.
