TomoTherapy introduced its HD radiation therapy platform at ASTRO 2010. The system allows both helical and direct fixed angle radiation therapy treatments. The HD's hardware also aids in stereotactic procedures for intercranial radiation therapy.
The HD adds functionality to the machine itself, so more can be done at the patient's side. This includes couch positioning and links to the hospital information system (HIS).
TomoTherapy also highlighted its relocatable radiation therapy (RT) system, which is mounted in a semi-truck trailer. The configuration helps bring cancer treatment to underserved areas, or allows uninterrupted service while a permanent RT bunker is being constructed.
