TomoTherapy Hi•Art System
The TomoTherapy® Hi-Art® Treatment System incorporates unique design features that combine to deliver highly conformal radiation therapy guided by a specialized multileaf collimator (MLC). This unique platform offers:
- Complete system integration
- CTrueTM imaging technology
- Helical pattern delivery
- Discrete-angle, sliding beam delivery (optional)
Radiation delivered by the Hi-Art System is aided by its sophisticated MLC. This patented device opens and closes quickly to permit, or block, the passage of radiation, dividing the radiation beams into many smaller beamlets. The patterns of movement are precisely calculated before treatment begins, so the intensity of the radiation beam delivered conforms to the patient’s tumor and helps avoid critical structures as the machine rotates 360 degrees around the patient.
