Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy Shows Potential in Oligometastatic Cancer

March 01, 2019

An increasing amount of evidence shows that a proportion of patients with cancer found to have low-volume metastases at diagnosis see meaningful benefit from aggressive local therapy. Equally important, there have been no meaningful reductions in reported quality of life among patients receiving intensive local therapy, and a small percentage of patients appear to be cured with this strategy.
