Notes 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. Unlike traditional techniques that deliver many small doses of radiation over days or weeks, stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) and stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) delivers large doses of radiation in one to five sessions to a precisely determined target. Often these techniques have proven to be as or more effective than traditional radiation therapy techniques, while at the sa
