New treatment of multiple brain tumours

Life Healthcare’s new treatment option for multiple brain tumours precisely shapes the radiation beam to the pattern of the patient’s cancer, ensuring that the best possible treatment dose is delivered while protecting healthy tissue. Novalis Radiosurgery treatment provides an alternative solution to the traditional radiotherapy. Previously, patients received whole-brain radiotherapy. This resulted in substantial damage to healthy tissue. An alternative was to treat tumours individually during multiple sessions. With this new system, patients can now receive safe treatment for multiple tumours during a single therapy session. There is no need for anesthesia, and while patient responses vary, most are able to resume their normal routine within a few hours after treatment.
