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.
- Adapt, if necessary, the treatment plan at any point.
