Task Group 101 of the AAPM has prepared this report for medical physicists, clinicians, and therapists in order to outline the best practice guidelines for the external-beam radiation therapy technique referred to as stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT). The task group report includes a review of the literature to identify reported clinical findings and expected outcomes for this treatment modality. Information is provided for establishing a SBRT program, including protocols, equipment… 

Launching a Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy Program

The phases of SBRT include imaging for target definition, immobilization, simulation, planning, motion management, imaging for alignment, and beam delivery, which are controlled to the greatest degree possible by the quality assurance program.

This state-ofthe-science book presenting the scientific principles, clinical background and procedures, treatment planning, and treatment delivery of SRS and SBRT for the treatment of tumors throughout the body is presented.

Immobilization and Imaging for Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy Motion Management

  • Medicine, Physics
  • 2016
To minimize tissue toxicity in SBRT, extensive planning efforts are made to generate the dose cloud in tight conformity with the target volume, and to achieve rapid fall-off in the dose to the surrounding normal tissue.
