TomoDirect: Specialized Breast Cancer Treatment

Last updated 1 year ago

Did you know that one in eight American women will receive a breast cancer diagnosis at some point in their lives? While this is a considerable number, cancer care specialists are using innovative techniques like TomoDirect to successfully combat this disease. TomoDirect is a radiation oncology treatment method that delivers linear radiation energy to cancer cells without invasive measures. Unlike traditional TomoTherapy, which utilizes helical radiotherapy, TomoDirect provides whole breast or partial breast cancer treatment with a series of distinct radiation beams. The direction and intensity of these beams are controlled by a radiation oncology specialist. With TomoDirect, more breast cancer patients have access to quicker radiotherapy cancer care. This infographic from Colorado TomoTherapy HD, a Denver-area cancer care center, demonstrates the benefits of TomoDirect. Please share this infographic with your friends and family to spread the word about the prevalence of breast cancer.
