Data for this trial is being collected via the NRG/RTOG Data Center.
Patients with localized spine metastasis from the C1 to L5 levels (a solitary spine metastasis; 2 separate spine levels; or up to 3 separate sites); each of the separate sites must have a maximal involvement of 2 contiguous vertebral bodies.
