Stereotactic body radiation for the spine: a review.

Am J Clin Oncol. 2013 Dec;36(6):630-6

Abstract
Stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) and stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) for spinal metastases are emerging treatment paradigms in the multidisciplinary management of metastases located within or adjacent (paraspinal) to the vertebral bodies/spinal cord. In this review, we provide a brief overview of spine SBRT/SRS indications, technology, planning, and treatment delivery; review the current state of the literature; and discuss the radiobiology, toxicity, and limitations of SBRT/SRS for metastatic disease of the spine.
