Novalis Tx, the result of a collaboration between Varian Medical Systems and BrainLAB, offers radiosurgery for a wide range of intra-cranial and extra-cranial tumours and lesions. It features high dose delivery rates, which means that treatments can be delivered rapidly. Novalis Tx also offers dynamic ultra-fine beam shaping and non-invasive, highly-precise frameless patient positioning for rapid and comfortable treatments.Along with the On-Board Imager device for clinically-practical image guided radiotherapy (IGRT), Varian will also be demonstrating its Clinac linear accelerators, Acuity imaging device for planning and simulating treatments, ARIA oncology information and image management system, Eclipse treatment planning software, advanced spot-scanning proton therapy solutions and the full range of planning and delivery tools for brachytherapy.For more information: www.varian.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Proton Therapy | August 08, 2019 MD Anderson to Expand Proton Therapy Center The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center unveiled plans to expand its Proton Therapy Center during a… read more News | Radiation Oncology | July 31, 2019 Laura Dawson, M.D., FASTRO, Chosen as ASTRO President-elect The members of the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) elected four new officers to ASTRO’s Board of… read more Related Content Following radiation, the bone marrow shows nearly complete loss of blood cells in mice (left).
