Lionel,

My recollection is that TOMO therapy was developed by a doctor at the U. of Wisconsin, which geographically would not be that far from you. (I haven't had time to confirm the location.) Would your Canadian health system cover treatment across the border?

I too have seen information on TOMO therapy as our well regarded community hospital is one of the relatively few that offers this therapy. I took a tour and was impressed.

I want to make some other comments when I have more time.

Take care,

Jim
