Overview and Indications
TrueBeam™ STx is a new solution that is more powerful, accurate and faster than a typical linear accelerator, allowing USC physicians to confidently treat complex cancers with the latest and most advanced radiosurgical techniques in the world. Ideal for challenging cases in the brain, spine, lung, liver, prostate and other sites, the system uses sophisticated imaging and respiration synchronization tools to visualize soft tissue during treatment and customize treatment accordingly. With new beam-shaping capabilities using a high-intensity mode, USC physicians can deliver larger doses of radiotherapy in smaller places. The TrueBeam™ STx rotates around the patient to deliver a prescribed radiation dose from nearly any angle offering a more targeted approach minimizing risk to healthy tissue. In addition, our doctors can perform radiosurgery procedures faster with most treatments taking only a few minutes a day.
