This chapter describes linear accelerator-based stereotactic spine radiotherapy. It is written for a broad audience and aims to provide an accessible introduction to the topic. The chapter begins by describing key features of stereotactic spine radiotherapy and the conventional linear accelerator. It then follows this by going through the main steps in the treatment process. It is by necessity brief and selective, and it is written from the authors' perspective; however, the references provide further detail and a starting point for those who wish to explore the growing body of literature on this topic.
