  • 2. What is Novalis Tx?The  Novalis  Tx  treats  paGents  with  a  procedure  called  stereotac)c  radiosurgery,  a  noninvasive  method  of  treaGng  tumors  with  high-­‐dose  radiaGon  precisely  aimed  from  different  angles.  How  does  Novalis  Tx  work?  •  During  Novalis  Tx  radiosurgery  sessions,  you  lie  on  a   treatment  table  while  the  machine  moves  –  without   touching  you  –  treaGng  all  areas  of  the  tumor.    •  Novalis  Tx  shapes  the  radiaGon  beams  it  delivers  to   match  the  shape  of  the  tumor.  The  cumulaGve  dose  of   radiaGon  kills  tumor  cells  while  minimizing  exposure  to   surrounding  healthy  Gssue.      •  A  typical  session  takes  about  15  minutes,  reducing   potenGal  errors  that  can  occur  in  longer-­‐lasGng   procedures.   555  East  Valley  Parkway  River,  NJ  08755    2025                                                        (732)  557-­‐3120                                                                    w  ww.sdradiosurgery.com 99  Route  37  West  Toms   Escondido,  CA  9                   760)  739-­‐3835        www.newjerseyck.com
