Non-Invasive Radiosurgery with Novalis Tx(TM) Platform Rolling Out Worldwide

"With Novalis Tx, you can deliver highly advanced stereotactic radiosurgery," says Benjamin Movsas, MD, chairman of the department of radiation oncology at Henry Ford. "When you start treating in areas that are very close to sensitive and critical structures, you want to do it with technology like Novalis Tx, which combines the best of BrainLAB know-how and radiosurgery software experience with the best of technology from Varian."

"We are excited by the continued adoption of Novalis Tx and the positive response from the clinical community," says Jean Hooks, general manager, Oncology, BrainLAB. "Novalis Tx helps enable clinicians, rather than limiting them. ETX and OBI allow clinicians to select the imaging and treatment delivery method that best suits their patient's individual disease. The adoption of Novalis Tx, with its comprehensive imaging capabilities, speed, precision and versatility, is making advanced radiosurgical treatments easily accessible to more hospitals, physicians and their patients."

"With Novalis Tx, we'll be able to perform radiosurgery that is so conformal, it's as if we're shrink-wrapping the tumor with radiation," says Gordon Ray, MD, chairman of the department of radiation oncology at Palo Alto Medical Foundation, which acquired Novalis Tx and is preparing to launch a radiosurgery program later this year. "We'll also be able to treat very small lesions in the spine as well as targets that move with respiration. Although we could do this type of work with other technologies, there are few that could do it as well."
