May 28, 2008 – TomoTherapy earned the top user satisfaction composite rating among four vendors in the linear accelerator-based radiation therapy marketplace, appearing in MD Buyline's Quarterly User Satisfaction Report, published on April 15, 2008.
TomoTherapy is reportedly the only vendor for the CT-based linear accelerator which delivers radiation dose in a helical or fan beam fashion. Elekta, Siemens and Varian offer IMRT and IGRT options on conventional linear accelerator systems.
In MD Buyline-conducted user interviews, customers noted the TomoTherapy Hi·Art treatment system’s strengths as its unique design and software, and superiority for intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT). With respect to the company, customers noted: an improvement in overall system reliability; satisfaction with how manufacturer pre-sets and commissioning shorten the installation process; and greater satisfaction in system service.
