What is stereotactic ablative radiotherapy (SABR)?
- You might be offered SABR instead of surgery
- It’s used to treat lung, spine, liver and bone tumours and tumours in individual lymph nodes
- It offers some patients longer disease and symptom control and improved quality of life
- It may use ‘rotational radiation therapy’ (VMAT) to focus a high dose of radiation to the tumour
- Surrounding healthy tissue receives a lower dose, minimising the risks of side-effects
- Targeted treatment means that SABR is effective and usually over quickly – just three to eight sessions
