TomoTherapy is a specialized form of radiation delivery that combines radiation therapy with 3D imaging to create more precise targeting of tumors. It works by delivering radiation beams from multiple directions allowing the radiation to match the exact shape of the tumor.

If your doctor prescribes TomoTherapy, you will lie on a table that is moved through a doughnut-shaped machine as radiation beam rotates around you. You may receive this treatment five days a week for several weeks to treat your cancer.
