Over the past decade radiosurgery has transitioned from a treatment option primarily used by Neurosurgeons for benign and malignant brain lesions to a treatment approach for other parts of the body. This transition in radiosurgery treatment has been spurred by technological advances allowing continuous intrafraction target tracking and precise radiation delivery to the tumor while limiting the radiation dose to nearby healthy tissue. As a result, radiosurgery is a highly conformal and spatially accurate radiation treatment that allows for hypofractionation in an effective and safe manner throughout the body. Growing experience with radiosurgery for lung, liver, pancreas and prostate is already changing the standard treatment paradigm. Given the growing clinical importance of these radiosurgical treatments, this Frontiers in Radiation Oncology Research Topic will provide a venue for disseminating the increasing clinical importance of radiosurgery. This should allow for the rapid dissemination of clinical information in this quickly growing field with the goal of maximizing the effectiveness and safety of this treatment. Both clinical results and pivotal technological aspects of radiosurgery treatment for the treatment of brain, spine, lung, prostate, liver, pancreas, head & neck as well as emerging applications such a breast, gynecological , adrenal and other extracranial sites are welcome.
