TomoTherapy® - TomoTherapy® Highly Integrated Adaptive Radiotherapy (HI-ART) is an innovative form of radiation therapy. The TomoTherapy® HI-ART system combines Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT), CT scanning technology, and advanced tools for planning and delivering radiation therapy in one machine. Using a built-in CT scanner to confirm the tumor’s exact shape and position before treatment begins, the TomoTherapy® HI-ART system delivers precise doses of radiation from a full 360-degrees. By contouring the radiation beams to the shape of the tumor, the TomoTherapy® HI-ART system can potentially reduce exposure to healthy surrounding tissue. TomoTherapy® HI-ART is often used to treat patients who have already received their maximum tolerance dose of traditional radiation, or whose cancer is located in a sensitive or hard-to-reach area.
