"We decided on the new Blue Phantom Helix when we bought our TomoTherapy Hi-Art system in 2010 as it came out top in our evaluations. It was used extensively during commissioning of the TomoTherapy® machine and has been used for QA since then. We really appreciate the easy and very fast setup of the tank on the TomoTherapy machine. After setup, the 3D scanning capability of the Blue Phantom Helix enables us to scan lateral as well as longitudinal profiles without changing the setup, which is much more efficient than our other tank. Overall we are very pleased with the quality of the system. Because of these advantages we now use the Blue Phantom Helix for all our commissioning and QA work on our Hi-Art system that requires water tank data."
