Stereotactic Radiosurgery

Novalis Tx Radiosurgery Platform

Scott & White offers a new treatment for cancer that means shorter treatments and less risk for patients. Our radiation oncologists can now offer directed radiation treatments contoured to the exact shape of a tumor, precisely delivering treatment while protecting surrounding healthy tissue. And with the Novalis Tx™ radiosurgery platform, treatment sessions last just minutes, not hours.

Benefits of the Novalis Tx Radiosurgery Platform

The Novalis Tx radiosurgery platform represents a new standard in radiosurgery, offering advanced technologies that deliver highly precise, fast treatment.

Precise

  • Shapes the radiation beam to match the exact contour of the tumor or lesion, ensuring the maximum prescribed dose of high-energy radiation is delivered to the entire tumor.
  • Protects surrounding healthy tissue.
  • Adapts the treatment beam to breathing and other body movements to continuously maintain safe, complete and accurate dose delivery.

Fast

  • Non-invasive, outpatient procedure lasts just 15 to 20 minutes, rather than hours, for a more-comfortable and less-restricted treatment experience than other radiosurgery devices.
  • Reduces the likelihood of patient or tumor movements, ensuring the highest possible level of treatment accuracy.
  • Treatment can take place in a single day, although your doctor will decide if your treatment should be administered in a single dose or in a series of doses.

Versatile

  • Employs a wide range of treatment modalities, ensuring you receive the best treatment for your individual case. Other radiosurgery devices are limited to only one treatment modality.
  • Delivers the industry’s highest dose rate, penetrating deeper to treat tumors previously considered untreatable.
  • Offers hope to patients with clinical conditions once considered untreatable and those for whom surgery is not an option.

Non-Invasive

  • Frameless radiosurgery offers a more patient-friendly alternative to other radiosurgery devices that require immobilization with a head ring that attaches to the skull.
