TomoTherapy uses a CT scanner to provide a three-dimensional (3D) image that ensures accurate and efficient treatment for every cancer patient every time. This consistency aids the helical (continuous 360º) IMRT to accurately aim tens of thousands of narrow beamlets, all targeting the tumor and individually-optimized to contribute to the total tumor dose.
This extreme accuracy translates to the most precise conformal radiotherapy available. Cancers that can be treated with TomoTherapy include:
- Bone Mets
- Head and neck
- Spinal Cord
