TomoTherapy planning – smooth integration and better precision

RayPlan has always led the way when it comes to technology integration, and we’re proud to support radiation therapy modality TomoTherapy®. If you are comparing RayStation with RayPlan you may want to check out TomoTherapy in RayStation also.

TomoTherapy Planning

In TomoTherapy, patients are scanned across a modulated strip-beam, so that only one section (Greek: tomo) is exposed at any one time by the linear accelerator (linac) beam. It is widely considered a versatile, efficient and effective way of treating cancer.

RayPlan fully supports planning for TomoTherapy systems from Accuray, which designs and manufactures systems using image-guided, intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IG-IMRT) for streamlined clinical workflows and fully integrated treatment planning.

Users can efficiently design optimal treatment plans in TomoHelical and TomoDirect treatment modes with access to the advanced functionality of RayPlan. RayPlan also provides planning support for Synchrony® real-time motion synchronization.

Optimization capabilities for TomoTherapy include dynamic jaw support, delivery time constraints, and the possibility to specify regions where irradiation is avoided. TomoTherapy planning can be smoothly integrated into the clinical workflow and treatment plans are sent to Accuray’s integrated data management system for delivery.
