Abstract

SUMMARY: In May 2006, at the Department of Radiation Oncology of the Oncology Center - Aviano, a Tomotherapy Hi-Art System has been installed. The Tomotherapy Hi-Art System provided a sophisticated kind of IMRT (Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy) treatment with a bundle of fan beamlets in continuous rotation motion combined with coach/patient longitudinal travel. The system is comprehensive of a computer for the calculation of the distribution of dose (executed with "inverse" planning), of a software and a hardware that allow the IGRT (Image Guided Radiotherapy), with the verification and the control of the positioning of the patient by means of volumetric comparison during the same session or between one session and another. In this year of experience, the Tomotherapy Hi-Art system, was used for the treatment of 80 patients that required highly conformal radiotherapy treatments or need an increment of biologically effective dose to the volume target. But the advantage mainly perceived from the arrival of the new system, has been a change or a cultural evolution that involved all the professional figures in our Department in particular the medical staff (Radiation Oncologist).
