TomoTherapy and Alliance Oncology to develop "first mobile radiation therapy"

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Radiation therapy company TomoTherapy has teamed up with Anaheim, California-based diagnostic service provider Alliance Oncology to develop what it calls the "world's first mobile radiation therapy service". The technology will be based on TomoTherapy's Hi-Art treatment system, which integrates CT imaging with radiation therapy to deliver precise treatment and minimise radiation to healthy tissue. The mobile trailers will be available to customers during construction of new systems, before system installation, to ease temporary backlogs, or as permanent systems in centres unable to expand their facilities. Madison, Wisconsin-based TomoTherapy said if successful, it would allow centres to upgrade ageing linear accelerators with no interruption in patient care. Financial details of the deal were not revealed.
