We are fortunate to have the Novalis Tx here at Jefferson Radiation Oncology, and we are happy to share this progressive new technology with our patients. Our department is among one of the first in the nation to install this technology, and we are using this for Brain Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS), Spine SRS, Lung SRS and for the treatment of trigeminal neuralgia.
Such precise treatment as Radiosurgery requires the collaboration of our physicians, physicists, dosimetrists, and technologists, and is supported by our Novalis Tx, Trilogy, BrainLAB and Exactrac technologies. Though our physicians have been involved with Brain SRS since 1997 and have experience with linear accelerator - and Gamma Knife - based radiosurgery, we have now brought several cutting-edge technologies to Jefferson Radiation Oncology and have become one of the most technologically advanced departments in the region. Our Brain SRS is a collaborative program with our colleagues in neurosurgery, many of who have substantial expertise in radiosurgery.
