Description: For this non-randomized, single arm study, researchers are evaluating stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) with adaptive radiation therapy (ART) for the treatment of non-resectable lung metastases from a primary soft tissue sarcoma.

Patients must be 18 years or older with 1 to 5 lung metastases; no metastasis can be larger than 5 cm.

SBRT with ART will be used for all patients; each metastasis will receive 3 to 5 fractions; 1 to 3 treatments will be conducted per week until completion. Follow-up will occur for 3 years.

The primary outcome is safety and toxicity; secondary outcomes include local/regional control, quality of life, and overall survival.
