Novalis radiosurgery

Stereotactic radiosurgery is an accepted modality in the treatment of primary and metastatic brain tumors, benign brain tumors, and certain other neurological disorders. The Novalis radiosurgery system consists of a linear accelerator, a high resolution beam shaping device (micro Multileaf Collimator – mMLC) and stereotactic systems for positioning the patient for treatment. Due to the “beam shaping” capabilities of the mMLC allowing the radiation beam to be tailored to the treatment area, the treatment with Novalis is also called "Shaped Beam Surgery".
