Practice guidelines of the DEGRO working group stereotactic radiotherapy & radiosurgery

The DEGRO working group stereotactic radiotherapy & radiosurgery received the mandate of the DEGRO board to develop practice guidelines on the evidence-based use and practice of stereotactic radiotherapy and radiosurgery.

So far, four practice guidelines have been developed and published:

  • Radiosurgery for brain metastases
  • Stereotactic body radiotherapy for early stage NSCLC
  • Stereotactic body radiotherapy for primary and secondary liver cancer
  • Stereotactic body radiotherapy for primary renal cell cancer and pancreatic cancer
