    Hi Marianne,

    Thank you for sharing this. I have never heard of this treatment before and did a quick search with google. I found this-

    Had anyone heard of this Novalis Tx technology at UCLA.

    It appears that this new radiation system is able to shoot multiple beams of radiation that are more accurate and more powerful than ever before that they are actually treating metastatic cancer that they were not able to treat with radiation before. Because it is more accurate, they are able to do a lot less damage to healthy cells.

    Here is the video. I talked with the Chief Therapist in the Radiation Oncology Department at UCLA and he was saying that they have used this machine for bile duct cancer before.

    I think they have this machine in Scottsdale AZ too and possibly elsewhere.

    Anyone know anything about this? Here is a link to the video.
