UF Radiosurgery System

Frank Bova, PhD, and William Friedman, MD, developed the UF Radiosurgery System, also known as the LINAC Scalpel. The system combines computer software with a linear accelerator – a device to position the patient – to produce a tenfold improvement in the accuracy of high-dose radiation delivered to brain tumors with very little of the dose reaching normal brain structures.
