When should SBRT be preferred in operative patients who cannot undergo a lobectomy?  

In other words, if offered wedge or segmentectomy, should SBRT be preferred? Does size matter ie if the lesion is < 3 vs < 2 vs < 1 cm? Does the chance of lymph node sampling or dissection play a lot into the decision in these sub-lobectomy resections?
