Novalis Tx® for Kidney Tumors

Radiosurgery for kidney tumors is noninvasive, and typically carries less risk of complications than conventional surgery. For patients who refuse surgery or have medically inoperable kidney tumors, radiosurgery can be an effective treatment option. Novalis Tx, which delivers high-dose radiation over one to five treatments, can be particularly effective for treatment of small kidney tumors. Novalis Tx has the ability to compensate for normal patient movements, precisely targeting the tumor during the entire procedure and minimizing damage to surrounding healthy tissue. This is important when treating kidney tumors, which can shift during treatment due to regular patient movements such as breathing.
