Radiosurgery is surgery using radiation, that is, the destruction of precisely selected areas of tissue using ionizing radiation rather than excision with a blade. Like other forms of radiation therapy (also called radiotherapy), it is usually used to treat urgery was originally defined by the Swedish neurosurgeon Lars Leksell as "a single high dose fraction of radiation.

    Stereotactic radiation therapy, also called stereotactic external-beam radiation therapy and stereotaxic radiation therapy, is a type of external radiation therapy that uses special equipment to position the patient and precisely deliver radiation to a tumor. The total dose of radiation is divided into several smaller doses given over several days.   Written by internationally known experts in the field, Stereotactic Radiosurgery and Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy examines one of the fastest-developing subspecialties within radiation oncology. These procedures deliver large doses of radiation in one to five sessions to a precisely determined target. Often these techniques have proven to beCited by: 9.

    Stereotactic Body RadioTherapy (SBRT) is a specialized innovative radiation therapy technique to treat tumors almost anywhere in the body with extremely focused targeted high-dose radiation, similar to brain radiosurgery for brain tumors (for example Gamma Knife).. Many types of tumors beyond the brain can be treated with SBRT, such as lung, liver, pancreas, spine, head and neck, kidney.   /Purpose: We report our clinical outcomes of patients with recurrent non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) tumors with ultra-central (UC) location treate.
