TomoTherapy

TomoTherapy® combines CT imaging and a 360-degree radiation delivery system to treat tumors while minimizing radiation exposure to surrounding healthy organs and tissues.

TomoTherapy®* allows specialists to:

  • Use daily CT imaging to guide treatment based on patient anatomy for that day, rather than for last week or last month.
  • Customize delivery for each patient, surrounding the target with highly precise radiation delivered from all angles. TomoTherapy® divides the radiation beam into "beamlets," all aimed at the tumor. Typically, tens of thousands of beamlets are used in a single treatment session.
