Tomotherapy

Size, location and shape of the tumor can change instantly in moving organs. Tomotherapy HAD sculpts the best treatment plan according to instantly changing volume of tissues and organs, such as prostate, pancreas and urinary bladder. The radiation bundle is divided to small bundles that vary in density to deliver sectional intensity modulated radiotherapy. Based on sectional intensity modulation, Tomotherapy HAD enables protection of critical tissues and organs located at the target volume of the radiotherapy. It adapts to the shape and size changes in moving organs. Since it can deliver the radiation to the target volume, the dose exposed by health tissues is minimized. Moreover, Tomotherapy HAD adjust the dose distribution according to large, long and adjacent volumes.
