Helical tomotherapy (HT) has been recently introduced in clinical practice in order to improve the quality of radiotherapy delivery in patients with malignant neoplasms. HT is a method of CT image-guided intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IG-IMRT) designed to achieve highly conformal dose distribution in various body sites for the cure of many tumors. This review briefly describes the wide potential impact of HT upon either clinical practice or technologic research in oncology.
