This is a single-centre, prospective, non-randomised feasibility study. This study will assess whether SABR can safely be given immediately prior to Whipple's resection by assessing the rate of post-operative complications.

This is a study measuring toxicity while making observations about the survival benefits of treating participants with oligometastatic disease using stereotactic ablative radiotherapy (SAB...
This study is evaluating stereotactic radiosurgery (CyberKnife) plus chemotherapy for the treatment of potentially resectable adenocarcinoma of the pancreas
The purpose of this study is to see if Ceritinib can target ALK in non-small cell lung cancer and slow down cancer growth and prevent it from spreading.
This study is evaluating the activity and efficacy of Stereotactic Ablative Body Radiotherapy (SABR) for the treatment of kidney cancers.
The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if adding nivolumab to standard treatment (stereotactic ablative radiotherapy [SABR]) can help to control recurrent (has come back) non...
Stereotactic ablative body radiotherapy (SABR) is an emerging noninvasive approach for the treatment of oligometastases. Limited prospective evidence is available in breast cancer.
Stereotactic ablative body radiotherapy (SABR) is now considered the standard of care for medically inoperable stage I non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). The English National Cancer Registration and ...
Stereotactic ablative radiotherapy (SABR) is highly effective at controlling early stage primary lung cancer and lung metastases. Although previous studies have suggested that treating multiple lung t...
Stereotactic ablative radiotherapy (SABR) is appealing for prostate cancer (PCa) due to low α/β, and increasing the dose per fraction could improve the therapeutic index and lead to a better quality...
and purpose: To assess the efficacy and safety of salvage stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) in patients with biopsy-proven local prostate cancer recurrence after radiotherapy.
Irradiation of one half or both halves of the body in the treatment of disseminated cancer or widespread metastases. It is used to treat diffuse metastases in one session as opposed to multiple fields over an extended period. The more frequent treatment modalities are upper hemibody irradiation (UHBI) or lower hemibody irradiation (LHBI). Less common is mid-body irradiation (MBI). In the treatment of both halves of the body sequentially, hemibody irradiation permits radiotherapy of the whole body with larger doses of radiation than could be accomplished with WHOLE-BODY IRRADIATION. It is sometimes called "systemic" hemibody irradiation with reference to its use in widespread cancer or metastases. (P. Rubin et al. Cancer, Vol 55, p2210, 1985)
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.

Fastening devices composed of steel-tantalum alloys used to close operative wounds, especially of the skin, which minimizes infection by not introducing a foreign body that would connect external and internal regions of the body. (From Segen, Current Med Talk, 1995)
A radiological stereotactic technique developed for cutting or destroying tissue by high doses of radiation in place of surgical incisions. It was originally developed for neurosurgery on structures in the brain and its use gradually spread to radiation surgery on extracranial structures as well. The usual rigid needles or probes of stereotactic surgery are replaced with beams of ionizing radiation directed toward a target so as to achieve local tissue destruction.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
The pancreas secretes a number of important hormones into the digestive tract and the blood stream. Cancers are most commonly exocrine than endocrine (neuroendocrine) tumors. Functional tumors secrete hormones; Insulinoma, Gastrinoma, Somatostatinoma, VI...
