The purpose of this study is to development of more effective treatment tactics of the stereotactic radiotherapy and radiosurgery alone and together with classic radiation therapy in primary inoperabel solid tumors and oligometastastatic cancer.
Despite the fact that of many investigations in the world clinical researches, the SRT of primary-inoperabel and metastatic solid tumors combined with conventional and conformal radiation therapy methods the possibility of the sequences, the optimal fractions of the regimes and doses which determines normal tissues toxic manifestations, implementation of prevention, have not been solved yet.
The conducted research works to study quality of life for improving the social status of patients with primary-inoperable and metastatic solid tumors, is not fully resolved.
Thus, preparing of highly effective treatment tactics in primary-inoperable and metastatic solid tumors, is one of the most important problems of modern clinical oncology and this fact gives grounds to carry out the planned research work.

Radiotherapy given to augment some other form of treatment such as surgery or chemotherapy. Adjuvant radiotherapy is commonly used in the therapy of cancer and can be administered before or after the primary treatment.
The total amount of radiation absorbed by tissues as a result of radiotherapy.
Radiotherapy where there is improved dose homogeneity within the tumor and reduced dosage to uninvolved structures. The precise shaping of dose distribution is achieved via the use of computer-controlled multileaf collimators.
Radiotherapy where cytotoxic radionuclides are linked to antibodies in order to deliver toxins directly to tumor targets. Therapy with targeted radiation rather than antibody-targeted toxins (IMMUNOTOXINS) has the advantage that adjacent tumor cells, which lack the appropriate antigenic determinants, can be destroyed by radiation cross-fire. Radioimmunotherapy is sometimes called targeted radiotherapy, but this latter term can also refer to radionuclides linked to non-immune molecules (see RADIOTHERAPY).
Computer-assisted mathematical calculations of beam angles, intensities of radiation, and duration of irradiation in radiotherapy.
