ACI is proud of the TomoTherapy HDA-H Series machine. TomoTheraphy is a form of intensity modulated radiation therapy made more precise with computed tomography (CT) scanning technology. This technology is already available here in the country, but with ACI’s newer and advanced TomoTherapy HDA-H unit more types of malignancies can be addressed. This machine delivers a very accurate treatment which addresses the tumor thus lessening the effects on other nearby healthy tissue.
