TomoTherapy Incorporated (NASDAQ: TOMO), maker of the HiArt treatment system for advanced radiation therapy, announced today that it has finalized the agreement to acquire privately held linear accelerator manufacturer Chengdu Twin Peak Accelerator Technology Inc., based in Chengdu, China.

MADISON, Wis. (Business Wire EON) November 4, 2008 -- A linear accelerator (linac) is a key component in radiation therapy systems used to create high-energy x-rays for cancer treatments.
