If, during previous treatment the maximum tolerance dose of traditional radiation for some areas has been reached, the TomoTherapy can provide a second chance for recovery.
The TomoTherapy®HD system is intended to treat tumors of all kinds including the most complex ones.
In case the tumor of a considerable size is irradiated with the conventional machine, it normally happens in several stages as it can cover only a small area. As a result, in the places where the zone borders overlap, the overdosed areas appear that may result in severe health complications for the patients. When using the TomoTherapy machine, the tumor, no matter how large, is irradiated uniformly and in one go.
The TomoTherapy method combines with all practical methods of the cancer treatment.
