Classification of tumor radiosensitivity is based on histology and divided into radiosensitive and radioresistant tumors based on their response to conventionally fractionated radiotherapy.
Radiosensitive tumors include:
Radioresistant tumors include:
Radioresistant tumors require stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) for durable control.
Many of the tumors with intermediate radio sensitivity benefit from SBRT to provide long term control.
