Study Summary

This trial compares single-fraction SBRT to standard radiation therapy in treating metastatic cancer. SBRT uses special equipment to deliver radiation to tumors with high precision. This method can kill tumor cells with fewer doses over a shorter period and cause less damage to normal tissue.
