This text provides oncology professionals with a practical understanding of the basic science, technical aspects, and clinical indications of extracranial stereotactic radiation (ESR) delivery including radiosurgery, radiotherapy, and radioablation. Coverage includes discussions of relevant classical and molecular radiobiological principles, critical evaluations of currently used techniques of ESR, and background clinical oncology information plus summaries of reported ESR outcomes for patients treated in the lung, liver, and spine.
