Premier Cancer Centers Dallas announces addition of the Accuray TomoTherapy® H™ Series
by PR Newswire
DALLAS, Jan. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Premier Cancer Centers Dallas, opening spring of 2013, will offer both Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS/SBRT) and Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) in one location to meet the needs of cancer patients everywhere. With these technologies, Cancer Has Met Its Match!
Premier Cancer Centers Dallas is bringing the first TomoTherapy HSeries to Texas. The H Series was created to make personalized radiation therapy an option for all cancer patients by treating indications across the entire spectrum of radiation oncology.
The H Series is much more than a traditional IMRT device due to a sophisticated multi-leaf collimator that contours a closely defined treatment field from one to five centimeters. Combined with TomoEdge technology, the H Series can dynamically contour the beam to match the shape of the patient's tumor(s). The result is a balanced treatment delivery that is as unique as each patient.
The H Series includes the CTrue Image guidance system that provides daily 3D CT images to monitor the size of the tumor. Our physicians can adjust the size of the beam to match the margins of the tumor as it is shrinking, sparing more healthy tissue during the course of treatment.
The technological advances of the TomoTherapy H Series allow greater accuracy, flexibility, and efficiency benefiting patients with shorter treatment times. Average treatment time is 15 minutes.
