TomoTherapy Incorporated announced that it is developing the world’s first mobile radiation therapy solution.

For the mobile service initiative, TomoTherapy has entered into discussions with Alliance Oncology, a radiation oncology provider and a subsidiary of Alliance Imaging, a leading provider of diagnostic medical imaging services. The companies expect to work together on the development and implementation of the mobile radiation therapy service.

Shawn Guse, TomoTherapy’s vice president of global sales said, We are very pleased to announce our plans to develop the world’s first mobile radiation therapy service. If successful, this will allow all radiation oncology centers to easily upgrade aging linear accelerators with no interruption in patient care. We expect that this offering will provide yet another key competitive advantage for TomoTherapy’s Hi·Art system over less integrated options and outdated system designs.
