TomoTherapy® for stomach cancer

TomoTherapy for stomach cancer

TomoTherapy® offers the following potential advantage for stomach cancer patients:

  • Uses built-in CT scanning to confirm the exact shape and location of a stomach tumor seconds before your treatment begins.
  • Targets hard-to-reach stomach tumors by sculpting small, powerful and more 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
