The quality of a stereotactic body radiation therapy program depends on the coordinated interactions of a team of skilled health care professionals. A high degree of spatial accuracy is necessary in the treatment planning and delivery process. 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.
