MADISON, Wis.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--TomoTherapy Incorporated (NASDAQ: TOMO) today announced that it will introduce the TomoDirect™ discrete-angle delivery mode1 for the TomoTherapy® Hi·Art® treatment system at two upcoming radiation oncology conferences. This innovative new technology allows Hi·Art system users to quickly plan and deliver advanced TomoTherapySM radiation treatments with a series of linear beam paths, rather than the existing helical path. With TomoDirect, clinicians can choose several discrete angles and the optimal modulation level required for delivery, based on specific patient therapy goals. TomoDirect will be unveiled at the annual meetings of the European Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology (ESTRO) in Gothenburg, Sweden, Sept. 14-18, 2008, and the American Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology (ASTRO) in Boston, Mass., Sept. 21-25, 2008.
