Radiation Oncologists from 16 Countries Attend TomoTherapy Conference

October 29, 2008 – Technical University of Munich, Germany, recently welcomed 175 radiation oncology experts from 16 countries to the International Conference on the Clinical Use of TomoTherapy.

The two-day event featured 35 technical talks from doctors and physicists. Presentations covered the multiple cancer types clinicians are treating with CT-guided, helical TomoTherapySM and treatment protocols that show promise in gaining improved outcomes for patients.

“Our clinic has used TomoTherapy for the last 2 years in a project funded by the German Oncology research foundation. This new technology, which combines CT imaging with a linear accelerator in one device, allows us to treat patients with a higher accuracy and to better shape dose distributions to target tumour volumes,” said Professor Michael Molls, M.D., chairman of Radiation Oncology, Klinikum Rechts der Isar, Technical University of Munich.

“Evidenced in many presentations is the need for volumetric daily image guidance such as that provided on the TomoTherapy Hi·Art treatment system,” said Patrick Kupelian, M.D., director of Clinical Research for Radiation Oncology at MD Anderson Cancer Center Orlando, FL.
