As part of the cancer care multi-disciplinary team, our radiation oncologists coordinate every aspect of care, with oncologists, radiologists, surgeons and pathologists to help decide the best course of treatment for each patient.
TomoTherapy HI-Art system is the most advanced radiation delivery system. It combines precise 3-D imaging from computerized tomography (CT scanning) with highly targeted radiation beams to deliver radiation with extreme precision to treat the cancer while minimizing damage to surrounding tissues.
TomoTherapy integrates treatment planning, patient positioning and radiation treatment delivery with one machine.
After checking in for your daily treatment, you will be taken to the TomoTherapy room where a radiation therapist will help you onto the Hi-Art systems couch. You will probably lie on your back, and the therapist may fit you with a special device to help you hold still during your TomoTherapy treatment.
Targeted radiation treatments are delivered by rotating beamlets to large, small and/or multiple cancerous areas. Radiation to surrounding healthy tissue is minimized.
