TomoTherapy ships new version of Hi-Art treatment
TomoTherapy has begun shipping version 3.1 of its TomoTherapy Hi-Art treatment system platform for image-guided, intensity-modulated radiation therapy.

The Madison, Wis.-based TomoTherapy said the faster system includes new software and hardware features that enhance clinical productivity and system usability, and are expected to increase patient throughput. The company also said that test results show savings of up to five minutes per patient have been achieved over previous versions, based on a standard 20-minute treatment slot.

The Hi-Art system orders shipped beginning Jan. 2, including the software and hardware features of version 3.1, and existing TomoTherapy customers will receive the software upgrade free of charge, according to the company.
