Stereotactic body radiotherapy is the technique of accurately delivering high doses of radiotherapy to small volume targets in a single or small number of sessions. The high biological effective dose of this treatment is reflected in the high rates of local control achieved across multiple tumour sites. Toxicity of the treatment can be significant and ongoing prospective trials will help define the utility of this treatment as an alternative to surgery in treating primary tumours and oligometastatic disease. Longer follow-up and survival data from prospective trials will be essential in determining the value of this resource-intensive treatment. The opportunity to combine this treatment with systemic therapies and its potential synergy with immunotherapy opens up interesting avenues for research in the future. View Full-Text
