The technical advantage of stereotactic body radiation therapy(SBRT) is based upon the ability to deliver a hypofractionated course of heterogeneous dose to a well‐defined volume with a rapid fall‐off of dose outside the treatment volume. The overall goal is to minimize the direct effects of radiation on the surrounding normal tissue while delivering a dose biologically equivalent (or greater) to several weeks of conventionally fractionated radiation therapy to the treatment volume. Over 4000… CONTINUE READING
