TomoTherapy Tops MD Buyline Review of Radiation Therapy Vendors

January 7, 2009 – TomoTherapy Inc. said today that it has again earned the highest user satisfaction composite rating among linear accelerator vendors in MD Buyline’s Quarterly User Satisfaction Report, published on Jan. 1, 2009.

The composite score for TomoTherapy topped that of conventional linear accelerator suppliers Varian Medical Systems, Elekta and Siemens for the third time in the last four quarters, said the company.

MD Buyline measures user satisfaction based on evaluations by more than 3,300 hospitals in the member network. Members rank their satisfaction in six areas: system performance; system reliability; installation and implementation; applications training; service response time; and service repair quality. TomoTherapy’s rankings were the highest in overall composite score, and either the highest or second highest in each contributing category. Founded in 1983, MD Buyline is a market intelligence organization that provides the healthcare industry with independent analysis and reporting.

In rating TomoTherapy, MD Buyline wrote, “TomoTherapy is 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.”
