Special Issue Information
Stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) has been established as a definitive treatment for Stage I non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), prostate cancer, hepatocellular carcinoma, kidney cancer, spinal metastases, and oligometastases. Considering the effectiveness of SBRT in these tumors, indication of SBRT may be expanded to include malignant tumors of other organs or cancer status. The strong points of SBRT are high radicality, minimum invasiveness, short treatment term with ultra-hypofractionation, and probably immunological enhancement. Recently, abscopal effect of radiation has been come into the spotlight according to appearance of SBRT and immune-checkpoint inhibitors. In spite of these topics, SBRT has not been reasonably popularized. Therefore, the aim of this special issue is to explore expanding the role of SBRT for more patients including not only medically inoperable, aged, or high risk operable but toward clearly operable patients. Original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following: to demonstrate the current status in various cancers or disease status, recent advances in irradiation technique, and future possibilities or problems of SBRT.
I look forward to receiving your contributions.
