This guide concisely summarizes cutting-edge information regarding stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) and stereotactic physique radiotherapy (SBRT), together with the background and improvement of those modalities, the biologic purpose for those applied sciences, average practices, and stated effects. built as a spouse to Handbook of Evidence-Based Radiotherapy, moment version, edited through Eric Hansen and Mack Roach, III, it truly is geared up by way of disorder website and offers therapy suggestions and steered imaging; protection and caliber coverage; toxicities and administration; steered follow-up; and helping facts. Inclusion of evidence-based instructions is meant to assist tell judgements in regards to the appropriateness of SRS and SBRT and advisor therapy and evaluate. Handbook of Evidence-Based Stereotactic Radiosurgery and Stereotactic physique Radiotherapy may be simply referenced within the sanatorium and is a precious advisor for oncology practitioners.​

Has associated errors. The cumulative system accuracy needs to be characterized through an end-to-end test using phantoms with measurement detectors and imaging on a routine basis. For the CyberKnife system, an end-to-end test is conducted once a month, rotating among the different imaging/tracking modalities. Every month, one end-to-end will be done for the fixed cone and one for the Iris. The end-to-end tests have to be repeated every time there is an upgrade to the system for all modalities.
