is one of the first centers in the United States to offer TrueBeam™ STx with Novalis® Radiosurgery to their patients. TrueBeam™ STx with Novalis® Radiosurgery is the newest shaped beam treatment technology available, which is a revolutionary method in treatment of cancer.

Tst thomas footage 13 -- st.thomas-footage-13_web.jpgrueBeam™ STx with Novalis® Radiosurgery system employs technical innovations through a control system entirely redesigned in order to dynamically synchronize imaging, patient positioning, movement management and treatment.
 

Designed as a multi-purpose platform by Brainlab and Varian, TrueBeam™ STx with Novalis® Radiosurgery system may be used for all advanced radiotherapy modalities including conventional and 3D conformal radiotherapy, radiotherapy and radiosurgery supported with imaging (IGRT and IGRS), intensity modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) and stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT). Intracranial and extracranial radiosurgery can be carried out with precision below the millimeter. 

TrueBeam 1 -- truebeam-1_web.jpgAdvanced, state-of-the-art computers create three-dimensional images that guide radiation oncologists and surgeons to pinpoint-target the tumor or lesion. This micro-precision technology allows high doses of radiation to be delivered to the irregular edges and contours of the tumor without harming the surrounding areas of the body. Our patients benefit from this advanced, non-invasive technology with faster recovery time, minimal disruptions, and fewer complications.
 
No incision is necessary, surrounding healthy tissue is not affected, and general anesthesia is not required for adults. Most patients can be treated on an outpatient basis.
