Treating Lung Cancer with Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy

CyberKnife® Robotic Radiosurgery painlessly delivers precise beams of radiation to tumors and lesions, without requiring incisions, hospitalization, or long recovery time. It can serve as an effective lung cancer treatment and is an especially good option for patients with early stage lung cancer, complex tumors or patients who prefer a non-invasive way to treat their cancer.

The American Cancer Society (ACS) recommends that people who currently smoke, or once smoked but have quit within the past 15 years, ages 55-74 in good health, and with at least a 30 pack-year history of smoking should undergo annual screening with low-dose computed tomography (LDCT).

Advantages of SBRT

  • Treats patients in 5 or fewer visits, depending on tumor size, volume, and location
  • Constantly corrects for patient/tumor movement throughout treatment, ensuring radiation beams are always locked on tumor during treatment
  • Respiratory tracking feature requires no breath-holding or respiratory gating by patient
  • Reaches tumors from virtually unlimited directions with robotic mobility
  • Enables clinicians to maximize and conform the dose to the tumor target while limiting radiation exposure to surrounding healthy tissue
  • Outpatient procedure, little or no recovery time and minimal side effects
  • Requires no anesthesia
  • Allows for an immediate return to normal activities
