Image Guided Radiosurgery
We offer advanced technology for image-guided radiosurgery that quickly delivers precise, high-energy radiation to tumors once considered untreatable because they cannot be reached through traditional surgery. Our Novalis Tx system is used by surgeons for fast, accurate, minimally invasive treatment for cancer and other conditions in the brain, head, neck and body, including prostate cancer, lung cancer and more.
- Surrounding healthy tissue is left intact
- Treatment is fast (20 minutes or less)
- Treatment is painless
- Treats hard-to-reach tumors
- Treatment usually is performed as an outpatient procedure
How it Works
A quick dose of high-energy radiation precisely targets and destroys tumors. The radiation beam is matched to the exact contour of the tumor or lesion. This helps ensure the maximum prescribed dose of high energy radiation is delivered to the entire tumor, but only to the tumor.
There is no frame holding the patient in place, unlike other radiosurgery systems, so treatment is comfortable. During treatment, Novalis Tx continuously tracks any micro movements of the patient and the surgeon, and it automatically adjusts.
Treatment may take place in a single day. Your doctor will decide if your treatment should be administered in a single dose or in a series of doses.
