TomoTherapy® for melanoma

TomoTherapy for melanoma

TomoTherapy® offers the following potential advantage for melanoma patients:

  • Uses built-in CT scanning to confirm the exact shape and location of a melanoma tumor seconds before your treatment begins.
  • Targets hard-to-reach melanoma tumors by sculpting small, powerful and precise radiation beams at the tumors from a full 360 degrees.
  • Lessens treatment-related side effects by reducing damage to nearby healthy tissue.
  • Avoids radiation exposure to muscle tissue, the spine, lungs and other sensitive organs.
