At Rush Radiosurgery we see a number of lung cancer patients who require retreatment for lung tumors after previously undergoing initial treatment with other forms of therapy.
For patients with recurrent lung tumors, stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) has the unique ability to retreat isolated tumor sites with TrueBeam™ STx technology. During treatment, high dose radiation is delivered to the targeted area with pinpoint precision, reducing radiation exposure to healthy tissue surrounding a tumor site.
Retreatment with TrueBeam STx offers many benefits for patients with disease sites previously treated using conventional radiation therapy, including minimal to no side effects and reduced overall treatment time.
