Florida Clinicians Now Delivering Non-Invasive Image-Guided Treatments Using Novalis Tx(TM) Radiosurgery Technology
Date:9/17/2009

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Sept. 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Chemotherapy wasn't working for Christina Crum, whose breast cancer had metastasized to multiple sites within her body. Therefore, she was pleased to hear that doctors at the Baptist Cancer Institute in Jacksonville, Florida, felt optimistic about the chances of treating her successfully using a newly-installed Novalis Tx(TM) radiosurgery platform from Varian Medical Systems and BrainLAB.

Sonja Schoeppel, MD, Crum's radiation oncologist, delivered a one week course of stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) to treat a metastatic growth in her right lung, and later, treated another tumor on one of her ribs.

"Christina's treatments had to be especially precise," said Dr. Schoeppel. "Her tissues and organs were extremely delicate due to earlier rounds of chemotherapy and radiation. Novalis Tx radiosurgery technology enables us to shape the beam with precision so we can avoid the surrounding anatomy. This has been great for Christina. Other treatment options just weren't working for her."

Crum, 44, said that she maintained an active lifestyle during her treatments: "I continued teaching my yoga and water aerobics classes all over Jacksonville--sometimes even before and after treatment. Unlike traditional surgery, in my case radiosurgery didn't lay me up at all. It was a great relief to know that another form of therapy was available that wouldn't keep me from going on with my everyday life," she said.

The Novalis Tx radiosurgery platform incorporates sophisticated beam shaping technology, precision targeting computers, and robotics that sculpt the treatment beam so that it envelops the tumor while avoiding the surrounding tissues and organs as much as possible. The Novalis Tx radiosurgery platform also offers a broad range of image-guidance tools to further enhance treatment precision. Clinici
