SBRT for lung cancer

SBRT for lung cancer

Preserving healthy tissue is important for many lung cancer patients, who may be struggling with other conditions like emphysema.

With sterotactic body radiation, our lung cancer team delivers:

  • Higher radiation doses to tumors that would not be possible with other radiation therapies.
  • Less damage to healthy lung tissue.
  • A fewer number of treatments than conventional radiation therapy

SBRT for lung cancer may offer a treatment option to patients who are not candidates for surgery, because of tumor size or location, emphysema or heart disease.
