Stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT or SABR) delivers highly targeted radiation to primary or metastatic tumors of different body sites including lung, liver, pancreas and spine and other tumor sites with high-precision, using imaging guidance.  Very large radiation doses can be given this way in very few (3 to 5) treatments instead of lengthy weeks-long daily radiation therapy schedules.

The University of Washington Department of Radiation Oncology is a leader in Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy and has nationally and internationally renowned expert leaders to care for our patients in all aspects of Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy for cancers and tumors.

For more information on the Stereotactic Radiation Therapy Program at the University of Washington call 206-598-4110.
