From the Back Cover: Novalis® Shaped Beam Radiosurgery has set new standards by delivering highly precise radiation treatments to tumors anywhere in the body through the use of a proprietary multileaf collimator. By shaping the radiation beam to the exact contours of the tumor or lesion, Novalis permits maximum dose delivery to the entire tumor while protecting healthy tissue; this makes it eminently suitable for the treatment of irregularly shaped tumors. Novalis features 360° gantry rotation, stereoscopic kV X-ray imaging, and 6D robotic patient positioning. Dose delivery is typically achieved through fixed conformal beams, dynamic conformal arcs, and IMRT, and most brain treatments do not require an invasive head frame.
