TomoTherapy® for pancreatic cancer
TomoTherapy® may be a promising treatment option for pancreatic cancer patients who have reached their maximum tolerance dosage of traditional radiation.
TomoTherapy offers the following potential advantage for pancreatic cancer patients:
- Uses built-in CT scanning to confirm the exact shape and location of a pancreatic tumor seconds before your treatment begins.
- Targets hard-to-reach pancreatic 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.
