22.5 Conclusion

Stereotactic radiation treatment of extracranial targets shows promising initial results. The techniques are getting increasingly more specialized, especially in the treatment of small lung tumors; however, many questions remain unanswered. More experimental work and clinical trials are underway which should answer these question and should strengthen this promising approach.
