For more than 80 years, radiation therapy has been used in cancer care. Our Radiation Oncology department physicians and staff bring a fresh approach with the use of the TomoTherapy Hi●Art treatment system.
While conventional radiation therapy machines have been adapted and readapted to keep up with advances in the field, the TomoTherapy Hi●Art treatment system was designed with fresh thinking and benefits that no other machine can match. With TomoTherapy, cancer cells are targeted and destroyed with unprecedented precision and minimum side effects.
TomoTherapy provides the unique ability to adapt a patient’s treatment plan before each day’s treatment. It allows the radiation oncology team to use daily CT imaging to guide treatment based on what the patient’s anatomy looks like today, rather than last week or last month. And because treatment is delivered from all angles, the delivery can be customized with minimum radiation exposure to health tissue.
