The Novalis Tx is a powerful radiosurgery system that offers a versatile combination of advanced technologies for the treatment of tumors and other anatomical targets. With the Novalis Tx radiosurgery platform, UCLA offers state-of-the-art, non-invasive treatment for a wide range of malignancies and other potentially debilitating conditions, without harming nearby healthy tissue and without involving traditional surgery.
Novalis Tx is equipped with Varians RapidArc radiotherapy technology. The Novalis Tx platform includes three imaging modalities for pinpointing the tumor and positioning the patient with high precision – an On-Board Imaging device (OBI), ExacTrac room-based image-guidance system provides continual imaging during treatment to detect movement and support robotic adjustments in patient positioning in six dimensions, and electronic portal imaging device (EPID). These methods allow for protection of surrounding healthy tissues while enabling clinicians to concentrate higher, more effective doses on tumors.
Novalis Tx Radiosurgery treats cancerous and non-cancerous conditions of the entire body, such as:
Novalis Tx Radiosurgery offers both stereotactic radiosurgery and fractionated stereotactic radiotherapy treatments. Unlike some treatment devices, it can provide a high number of treatment fractions. Novalis Tx Radiosurgery India
Studies have shown that fractionated treatment is necessary to ensure effective treatment for some tumors and protect healthy tissue. This is particularly true for tumors near auditory nerves, where extending treatment over a number of fractions can provide better treatment outcomes and preserve the patient’s hearing.
Novalis Tx Radiosurgery employs a wide range of treatment modalities-single stage, hypo- and hyper-fractionation; circular and conformal beams; dynamic conformal arcs; and IMRT-ensuring patients receive the best treatment for their individual case.
