Tomotherapy HDA

The Tomotherapy is a radiation therapy device in which the radiation is delivered slice-by-slice.  It combines a form of Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) with the accuracy of Computed Tomography (CT) scanning technology in one device.  It offers an integrated approach to radiation therapy, combining imaging and treatment delivery to precisely target a wide variety of cancers.


It is a treatment method evolved from advanced technologies involved in the targeting of cancer cells through the ‘pencil beam/beamlet’ technique;  a customized radiotherapy is performed on each patient.  The TomoTherapy® device is designed with a therapeutic linear accelerator and can perform high-level, 3D imaging, as well as high-level, helical and 3D radiotherapy.


TomoTherapy® is used in the treatment of tumors that are located in risky areas and makes it possible for radiotherapy to be administered without harming the surrounding healthy tissues and cells.  All oncological treatments that require radiotherapy can be performed with the TomoTherapy® HDA method.  With its high precision, TomoTherapy® makes it possible to give radiation therapy to large areas.


The system is particularly prominent in:


  • Pediatric Tumors
  • Bilateral Breast Tumors
  • Head and Neck Tumors
  • Laryngeal Tumors
  • Nasal Cavity Tumors
  • Mesothelioma Irradiation
  • Brain and Spinal Cord Tumors (Craniospinal Irradiation)
  • Complex Radiation Procedures (Eyes, Spinal Cord, Hippocampus)
  • Simultaneous Irradiation of Multiple Tumors
  • Bone Marrow and Full Body Radiation (IG-IMRT Technique)
  • Irradiation of Multiple Metastases
