TomoTherapy for non-Hodgkin lymphoma
Some advantages of TomoTherapy® for NHL include:
- The system targets difficult-to-reach lymphoma tumors by sculpting powerful and precise radiation beams at the tumors from a full 360 degrees.
- By using built-in CT scanning to confirm the size, shape and location of a tumor before each TomoTherapy treatment begins, damage to healthy surrounding tissues is minimized.
- During treatment, we can adjust the intensity and direction of the radiation beams in real time.
- TomoTherapy uses a “slice therapy” approach to treats tumors one layer at a time, delivering variable amounts of radiation to different parts of a tumor.

Throughout your NHL treatment, you will have access to supportive care services, such as such as nutrition therapy, naturopathic medicine, pain management, oncology rehabilitation and mind-body medicine.
