What is TomoTherapy?

TomoTherapy is a unique radiation delivery system with a built-in CT scanner that combines imaging and treatment delivery, referring to every patient with radiotherapeutic indication.
Its precision and its ease to operate enables it to simplify even the most complicated cases.

How does TomoTherapy work?

Within 5-10’, the 3D radiation dose is delivered with high precision with a 360-degree rotation around the patient, providing protection to the adjacent healthy tissues.
Daily treatment uses daily CT images (CTrue) that verify tumor’s exact positioning and dimensions during the radiotherapeutic procedure.
Therefor, it enables, if necessary, the adjustment of treatment’s planning, making treatment customized to every patient’s need.

Why TomoTherapy?

TomoTherapy enables the delivery of radiation to the targeted tumor with high accuracy and precision, while sparing healthy tissues and minimizing side effects.
