TomoTherapy Hi-Art Version 3.1 Saves Time

TomoTherapy Inc.’s Hi-Art treatment system 3.1 is said to be a faster version of its image-guided, intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IG-IMRT) that includes new software and hardware features aimed at enhancing clinical productivity and system usability, and is expected to increase patient throughput.
According to a time-on-task study to assess system enhancements in a clinical setting, results reportedly show a savings of up to five minutes per patient have been achieved over previous versions, based on a standard 20-minute treatment slot. Software highlights of Hi-Art version 3.1 include a variety of delivery system design improvements designed to eliminate delays in the treatment process. Hardware updates include the addition of a second planning workstation to facilitate parallel clinical workflow, and the introduction of the new High Performance Couch, which provides efficiencies in the quality assurance, imaging and treatment processes, according to the company.
