For 15 years, the Novalis® Radiosurgery Program has been offering a high standard of radiosurgery and stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT), delivered via a premium configuration of components. It allows for the delivery of non-invasive, shaped-beam cancer treatment that takes just minutes out of your day. Novalis radiosurgery treats cancerous and non-cancerous conditions of the entire body with one-of-a-kind shaped-beam technology. Shaping the beam precisely to your tumor gives your doctor confidence that the best possible treatment dose is delivered while healthy tissue is protected. The program utilizes the TrueBeam™ STx system that performs both SBRT for treatments throughout the body and sterotactic radiosurgery (SRS) for treatments in the brain or central nervous system. TrueBeam STx combines imaging, sophisticated and powerful beam delivery and advanced motion management to perform radiosurgery with great precision and speed.
This treatment is available at Ochsner Medical Center - Jefferson Hwy.
