The Novalis Tx™ Radiosurgery Platform is a minimally invasive type of stereotactic radiation treatment that treats cancerous and non-cancerous masses with targeted, precisely focused high-dose X-ray beams. Novalis’ sophisticated software calculates the ideal access points to the tumor and defines the treatment plan.
Radiosurgery has become an increasingly useful treatment option for neurosurgeons at NSPC Brain & Spine Surgery (NSPC), on Long Island as surgical strategies shift toward preservation of function.
Featuring innovative RapidArc radiotherapy technology, the Novalis Tx radiosurgery procedure is used to treat conditions such as:
Novalis Tx Radiosurgery can be used as a minimally invasive outpatient treatment instead of surgery or in addition to surgery depending on the patient’s condition. The many benefits of this stereotactic radiosurgery approach include:
Unlike conventional radiation therapy that delivers full dose radiation beams to the tumor as well as to some normal tissue around it, Novalis Tx Radiosurgery delivers a precisely focused radiation beam that is finely shaped to the exact shape of the tumor, thus protecting normal tissue nearby.
Standard radiation treatment is delivered in small, daily doses over 10, 20, or 30 treatment sessions. Due to the unparalleled precision and safety of the Novalis Tx system, a single high-radiation dose can safely deliver all the treatment needed and accomplish an even better patient outcome.
One session can take as little as two minutes to complete. Patients are able to resume their normal activities almost immediately with little or no side effects.
For over 50 years & 350,000 patients NSPC has been a trusted global medical leader.
