What Is SABR – Webinar

by | Nov 15, 2023 | Uncategorised | 0 comments

We are delighted to invite you to our next Living With Kidney Cancer Webinar on Tuesday 28th November at 6pm on Zoom titled, ‘What is SABR & What does it mean for kidney cancer patients’. The webinar will feature a presentation from Consultant Clinical Oncologist and honorary Senior lecturer at the University of Birmingham, Dr. Anjali Zarkar, MD, MRCP, FRCR, and a talk from a patient on their experience of SABR. Following the presentation we will open the floor for a full Q&A.

Stereotactic Ablative Body Radiotherapy, also known as ‘SABR’, is a way of giving radiotherapy to precisely target certain cancers, of which kidney cancer is one. SABR increases the chance of controlling the tumour whilst sparing normal tissues. It does this by using fewer treatment sessions, smaller more precise radiation fields, and higher doses of radiation.

But what is SABR, how does it work, and what does it mean for kidney cancer patients…… Dr Anjali Zarkar will explain and answer all your questions.
