Tomotherapy: Integration of CT imaging for exceptional radiation treatment accuracy

The Accuray Tomotherapy is located at Long Beach Memorial. It offers a revolutionary method that integrates CT imaging with first-of-its-kind helical treatment delivery.

About our Accuray Tomotherapy

The Accuray TomoTherapy radiation platform is the first to combine CT imaging with a unique ring gantry platform that enables precision treatment delivery across the full spectrum of indications and radiation therapies — including image-guided, intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IG-IMRT) and 3D conformal radiation therapy (3DCRT).

Integrated Daily Imaging

Advanced volumetric imaging technology is fully integrated into TomoTherapy. This allows highly efficient daily low-dose 3D CT imaging to perfectly position patients before each treatment delivery.

Continuous Rotational (Helical) Delivery

The TomoTherapy System’s flagship helical delivery mode, sets the gold standard for treatment and targeting of complex tumors. TomoHelical combines continuous 360 degree fan-beam delivery of intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) and low-dose CTrue 3D CT imaging. During treatment delivery, the linear accelerator completes multiple 360-degree rotations around the patient, while the couch passes through the center bore of the system. Continuous high-dose rate delivery enables shorter beam-on times than most other radiation treatment systems, and provides highly conformal, uniform dose distributions while minimizing dose to surrounding normal structures.

Pinpoint Accuracy

Pin point accuracy and precision to deliver radiation to the tumor while sparing adjacent normal tissue.

Rapid Delivery

Using Tomotherapy helical delivery technology, radiation is delivered with less time while reducing radiation exposure to normal tissue.

Helical Radiation Delivery

Radiation is continuously delivered as the patient advances through the Tomotherapy treatment machine.
