A one of a kind technology that can treat both non-cancerous and cancerous conditions in a very less time is known as Novalis Tx radiosurgery system. The delivery of the beam is shaped in a precise way that is directed onto the tumor. The idea is to deliver the best possible treatment while sparing the surrounding healthy tissue. Novalis Tx makes use of a procedure known as stereotactic radiosurgery for treating the patients. Stereotactic radiosurgery is a non-invasive process that delivers high doses of radiation on the tumor from different angles.
Novalis Tx is an ideal technology for treating those tumors that were previously located in inaccessible locations and were difficult to treat. This technology decreases the treatment time as the high-dose radiation beams matches the shape of the tumor that is being treated. The potential errors are also reduced as in the case of time consuming procedures. The entire treatment session can be completed in just 15 minutes.
Both cancerous and non-cancerous conditions can be treated with the help of Novalis Tx that include –
High-tech radiation delivery system is used by Novalis Tx radiosurgery that makes use of motion management and image-guidance tools. A patient is required to lie down on a table and the machine then starts to rotate around the patient. The cancer-fighting shaped beams are then delivered from various angles for treating tumors located at different areas. The aim of Novalis Tx is to shape the radiation beam so as to match the tumor shape. This radiation beam destroys the tumor while sparing the nearby healthy tissue. The shape, size and location of the tumor are the factors that determine the number of treatments.
Novalis Tx is considered as a most advanced treatment for treating cancer that has helped a number of people around the world. Some of its benefits include –
Non-Invasive: One of the greatest advantages of frameless radiosurgery is that it provides a non-invasive and comfortable alternative to other radiosurgery systems. The immobilization is required by these radiosurgery systems that attaches the skull with a head ring.
Precise: Novalis Tx is considered as a very precise technology for treating cancer. This preciseness can be seen in following conditions –
