January 8, 2009 - TomoTherapy Inc. said today that Siteman Cancer Center at Barnes-Jewish Hospital and Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, MO., has commenced treating patients on its second TomoTherapy Hi-Art(R) treatment system.

Siteman, a National Cancer Institute (NCI) Comprehensive Cancer Center, installed its first Hi-Art system in early 2006. The installation of a second unit enables more cancer patients to benefit from this intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) solution.

"We knew the benefits of arc-based radiation delivery before installing our first TomoTherapy unit,” said Dan Low, Ph.D., associate professor of radiation oncology, Washington University School of Medicine. “Upon installation, we gained the ability to deliver IMRT in a continuous helical pattern, and the infrastructure and workflow to apply image guidance to each treatment, for every patient. This is something we cannot do on any other system. As we've become more accustomed to the benefits of this platform, we saw a need for a second Hi-Art system."
