Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT)

Stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT), or stereotactic ablative radiotherapy, is a type of radiation therapy that precisely targets a tumor with high doses of radiation by using several beams of various intensities aimed at different angles.

 Accuray Incorporated announced the company has launched the CyberKnife S7 System, an innovative device combining speed, advanced precision and real-time artificial intelligence (AI)-driven motion tracking and synchronization treatment delivery for all stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) and stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) treatments — in as little as 15 minutes.
