SRS: Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT)
UAB became the first medical center in Alabama to offer Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy in 2005. For 40 years, the UAB Comprehensive Cancer Center has been recognized for its excellent care, innovative research, and expert specialists. The SBRT program is an integral part of the comprehensive care approach.
This highly advanced radiation therapy allows physicians to deliver high-energy x-ray beams precisely to the tumor targets throughout the body. Physicians can treat with higher doses of radiation and reduce the toxicity, resulting in fewer side effects and shorter treatment times as compared to other treatment modalities.
UAB Radiosurgery offers SBRT at The Kirklin Clinic at Acton Road and also on the Varian iX linear accelerator with RapidArc at the Hazelrig-Salter Radiation Oncology Center.
