  • Spine SBRT involves the delivery of very high doses of radiation to targets adjacent to the spinal cord and is most commonly delivered in a single fraction. Highly conformal planning and accurate delivery of such plans is imperative for successful treatment without catastrophic adverse effects. End–to‐end testing is an important practice for evaluating the entire treatment process from simulation through treatment delivery. We performed end‐to‐end testing for a set of representative spine… CONTINUE READING
