Sweden to Receive Scandinavia's First TomoTherapy System : Lund University Hospital to Offer Swedish Cancer Patients the Most Advanced Image-Guided Radiation Therapy Treatments
Date:7/31/2008

ss. "We think TomoTherapy is the most advanced image-guided system for radiotherapy with an integrated functionality for imaging and localisation of the target volume. It also produces the most advantageous dose distributions for IMRT," according to Kns.

Added Engellau, "With the HiArt system, we see obvious clinical advantages for treating complex radiation target volumes, multiple targets and targets requiring a high radiation dose with close proximity to healthy organs. Conventional 3D conformal radiation or IMRT can treat some but not all of these case types. If the cases can be attempted, we believe the results would be less conformal, less accurate and with much longer treatment times than with TomoTherapy."

While TomoTherapy will be used to treat a wide array of cancers, the clinical experts at Lund plan to focus on anal, rectal, cervical, stomach and esophageal cancers. They will also be using the HiArt system for stereotactic radiosurgery treatments and see greater possibilities for clinical trials involving simultaneously integrated boost (SIB) with or without dose escalation.

Lund University Hospital plans to install the TomoTherapy HiArt system later this year.
