The Non-Invasive Novalis TX

Radiosurgery. Many may have heard about it, but what exactly is it? Radiosurgery is a non-invasive, highly precise medical procedure for cancer patients and it uses beams of ionizing radiation to ablate cancerous lesions of the entire body. Although this technique has been around since the 1950’s, a new piece of technology further perfects the procedure.

The Novalis Tx, available at Boca Raton Regional Hospital’s Eugene M. and Christine E. Lynn Cancer Institute is image-guided radiosurgery. The Novalis Tx is a highly sophisticated and personalized treatment option for cancer patients. The system shapes the radiation beam to match the exact shape and size of the tumor, ensuring the maximum prescribed dose of high-energy radiation is delivered. Because of its accuracy, it protects surrounding healthy tissue and can penetrate deeper to radiate growths previously considered untreatable. Not to mention, it’s painless, non-invasive, doesn’t require anesthesia and requires less treatments compared to similar systems.
