Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT) is a advanced treatment option for treating cancers in the lung, head and neck, prostate, liver and other disease sites outside the Central Nervous System. SBRT is a non-invasive treatment procedure similar to SRS, except that it deals with tumours outside the central nervous system (CNS).

The objective of SBRT is to escalate the dose to the target lesion and thus to increase local control while limiting dose to nearby critical structures and normal tissue. Some requirements of SBRT program may include precise localization of the target lesion in the treatment planning process; account for tumor motion due to respiration or other changes in the body; highly conformal dose distribution to the target volume including a steep dose gradient to minimize dose to surrounding healthy tissue sparing; and image-guidance at the time of dose delivery for verification and adjustment of the target localization.
