05 Sep TomoTherapy sells first radiation therapy system in China
Madison, Wis. – True to its word, TomoTherapy has gained a foothold in the potentially lucrative Chinese market.
TomoTherapy, which became a publicly traded company earlier this year, has announced the sale of its first Hi-Art radiation therapy unit to PLA301, one of the largest hospitals in China.
The company, which already has penetrated markets in Europe and India, sells the units to university research centers, hospitals, and cancer centers that treat a variety of cancers.
Gov. Jim Doyle will join executives from TomoTherapy to launch the system during his forthcoming trade mission to China and Japan. The governor’s office said China is Wisconsin’s fastest-growing export market, with 2006 state exports to China totaling $870 million, a 29 percent increase over 2005.
