Abstract

The quality of a stereotactic body radiation therapy program is only as good as its weakest link. High spatial accuracies are expected, and time constraints are relatively short. Since SBRT uses either single fraction treatment or a hypofractionated regimen, there is little chance for adjustment once treatment has been initiated. This demands considerable time for planning and treatment verification by the radiation oncologist and medical physicist.
