Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy

A non-invasive technique, stereotactic body radiotherapy was introduced at Yale in 2007 to provide extremely high doses of radiation with a high level of accuracy to lung cancer tumors. This precise treatment also results in less radiation delivered to surrounding tissue and fewer side effects.

Available to patients with medically inoperable and node-negative non-small cell lung cancer after careful consideration by the treatment team, radiosurgery requires an array of specialized equipment, and a well trained staff of physicists, dosimetrists, and therapists.
