Tomotherapy is a new standard in the treatment of cancer, based on the use of helical radiation therapy. Radiation is conducted with the help of the unique TomoTherapy HD system, which combines a computer tomograph and a linear electron accelerator.
The equipment we use allows us to treat neoplasms of various localizations. One of the main advantages of this device is the possibility of irradiation of extended tumors, as well as simultaneous irradiation of several tumors without re-laying the patient and docking of irradiation fields. The possibilities of classical linear accelerators are limited by the size of the irradiation field (40×40 cm). But thanks to a unique design and innovative technology, the TomoTherapyHD system makes it possible to form an irradiation field of 40×135 cm. This is extremely important, since when docking the irradiation fields there is a probability of under-exposure or overexposure of the tumor in the docking area. Both variants are undesirable, because the first can lead to a tumor recurrence, and the second ― to radiation complications. The position of the tumor in the body of the patient is constantly monitored by means of CT scanning for the most accurate delivery of the therapeutic dose.
The duration and cost of the radiation therapy course are determined individually for each patient, in accordance with the world standards of treatment.Learn more
