Abstract

Metastases of the spinal column are common amongst cancer patients with approximately 18,000 new cases in North America each year that require urgent treatment. Historically radiation therapy doses have been limited due to the proximity of the spinal cord. However as image guidance and localization techniques have improved it has become possible to deliver higher radiation doses to the tumour whilst sparing the spinal cord. This paper presents some of the techniques undertaken at our center.
