Stereotactic Radiosurgery with Helical Tomotherapy®

A robust and efficient planning technique was identified to produce plans of radiosurgical quality using the TomoTherapy treatment planning system. Dose calculation did not exceed a few hours and resulting delivery times were less than one hour, which allows the process to fit into a single day radiosurgery workflow. Plan conformity compared favorably with published […]

Effect of Fan Beam Thickness in Helical TomoTherapy®

The aim of this case study is to evaluate the dosimetric influence of changing the fan beam thickness (FBT) in the treatment of a nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) patient.

Treatment using Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy

In this initial experience with accelerated IMRT plus capecitabine for patients who had large HepatoCellular Carcinoma lesions, the results demonstrated acceptable toxicity with promising local control. The relatively low acute and late toxicity observed with this program suggested that dose intensification can be incorporated into the treatment regimen if needed. Cancer 2009. © 2009 American […]

Dosimetric Analysis of Treatment of Prostate Cancer

The TomoTherapy System offers a more favorable dose distribution to the bladder and rectum, as well as improved target homogeneity.


Treatment Plans using IMRT with Helical TomoTherapy®

The purpose of this study was to compare radiation treatment plans (RTPs) that used intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) with helical tomotherapy (HT) or three-dimensional conformal radiation therapy (3D-CRT) for nasal natural killer/T-cell lymphoma (NNKTL).

Treatment Plans using Radiation and Helical TomoTherapy®

This study evaluated whether helical tomotherapy (TOMO) planning could achieve better isodose distribution for the maxillary sinus while concomitantly sparing the adjacent _critical normal organs than linac-based step-and-shoot IMRT (s-IMRT) planning.

Assessment of Patient Setup using Daily MVCT Imaging

To assess patient setup corrections based on daily megavoltage CT (MVCT) imaging for four anatomic treatment sites treated on tomotherapy.

Deformable Registration of Abdominal Kilovoltage Treatment Planning

The authors evaluated the procedure on multiple image datasets from prostate cancer patients and gynecological cancer patients. Compared to rigid alignment, the proposed method improves volume matching by over 60% for the critical organs and reduces the prostate landmark registration errors by 50%.

Radiotherapy for Soft Tissue Sarcomas of Extremities

To evaluate dosimetry of helical TomoTherapy versus three-dimensional conformal radiotherapy (3D-CRT) with and without IMRT for the treatment of soft tissue sarcoma (STS) of the thigh.

TomoTherapy® Treatments for Superficial Target Volumes

Helical tomotherapy is a technique for delivering intensity modulated radiation therapy treatments using a continuously rotating linac. In this approach, fan beams exiting the linac are dynamically modulated in synchrony with the motion of the gantry and couch. Helical IMRT deliveries have been applied to treating surface lesions, and the purpose of this study was […]
