trial description
  • NRG/RTOG 0631
  • Multiple radiation treatments are frequently used to treat pain caused by cancer that has spread to the spine. Image-guided radiosurgery or stereotactic body radiation therapy (called SBRT) is a treatment that uses highly focused x-rays to deliver a single high dose on a specific area of the body. Image-guided radiosurgery or SBRT uses special equipment to position the patient and guide the focused beams toward the area to be treated and away from normal tissue.  The purpose of this part of the study is to compare the effects, good and/or bad, of image-guided radiosurgery or SBRT to standard radiation therapy to find out which treatment provides the most rapid pain relief with the least side effects in patients with metastatic disease to the spine.
