Spine stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) involves delivering 4-6 times the biologic effective dose than conventional external beam radiation in a precise and conformal fashion. Technically it is very demanding, requiring sophisticated treatment planning, body immobilization, intensity modulated radiotherapy, and image guidance. The aim is to improve on existing rates of pain and local tumor control while sparing the spinal cord to a safe dose. Evidence is currently limited to several retrospective reviews and phase I/II trials with promising rates of efficacy reported. This chapter details a series on investigations from treatment planning and technology evaluation, to efficacy for spinal metastases and primary spinal tumor.
