Safety of high-dose-rate stereotactic body radiotherapy


BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Flattening filter free (FFF) beams with high dose rate are increasingly used for stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT), because they substantially shorten beam-on time. The physical properties of these beams together with potentially unknown radiobiological effects might affect patient safety. Therefore here we analyzed the clinical… (More)
