Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy

 

Novalis Stereotactic body radiation therapy is the application of both SRS and SRT techniques to areas of the body other than the head and neck. This form of radiation therapy differs, however, in that organs and tumors in areas outside of the cranial region are more prone to change position relative to other organs in the body due to various factors including respiration.

Special techniques are incorporated to adjust the dose delivery to compensate for any changes of tumor position.
