The technology at UCLA was designed in conjunction with scientists in the Division of Medical Physics. UCLA is the first institution to deliver high precision, high resolution IMRT using the Novalis linear accelerator. The beam shaping device of the Novalis is equipped with 3 mm "leaves" as opposed to the standard 10 mm leaves of most other commercial devices.
The UCLA IMRT Program is a team effort comprising specialists in Radiation Oncology, Surgery, Urology, and Medical Physics. The Medical Physics division in particular is staffed by 13 specialists, 11 with advanced PhD's.
