Starting in 2016, the Department of Radiation Oncology, University Medical Center Freiburg offers treatment with modern tomotherapy technology. The installation of the tomotherapy system is the first of its kind in the region. The equipment is a combination of a high resolution computer tomography scanner and a linear accelerator. An X-ray is spiralling around the patient, who is placed in a horizontal position. This way, 3-dimensional images are generated like in a CT-scan, allowing the exact localization of tumors. At the same time radiotherapy is applied in a highly conformal manner, i.e. precisely matched to the target area.

This new method offers a better dose distribution and protection of healthy tissue than traditional radiation technologies, especially in cases of extensive and / or multiple tumors.
