Study of Image Guided Radiosurgery

Phase II/III Study of Image Guided Radiosurgery / SBRT for Localized Spine Metastasis

Objective

Multiple radiation treatments are frequently used to treat pain caused by cancer that has spread to the spine. Image guided radiosurgery/ stereotactic body radiation (SBRT) is a treatment that uses highly focused x-rays to deliver a single high dose on a specific area of the body. This study will evaluate the effect of SBRT on the cancer that has spread to the patient’s spine and also has a second phase to evaluate the effects of SBRT to standard radiation therapy to find out which treatment provides the most rapid pain relief with the least side effects.
