New Cancer-Targeting Technology Now In Tyler Hospital

It's some of the newest, most powerful cancer-fighting technology available, and Trinity Mother Frances and Texas Oncology-Texas has it.

The first patient was treated this morning with the new Novalis T-X system.

The multi-million dollar technology provides faster and more accurate treatment for a wide variety of cancers, including brain, pancreas, liver, prostate, and lungs.

The system is so powerful it can deliver doses of radiation faster that conventional systems, and so accurate, nearby healthy tissue is protected from damaging radiation.
