MR Image Guidance & On-Table Adaptive Radiotherapy in Routine Clinical Practice

Presented by

Miguel A. Palacios, Medical Physicist at VU Medical Centre and Lauren Henke, Radiation Oncologist at Washington University

About this talk

Learn about the rationale and workflow for modifying radiation therapy treatments while the patient is on the table using Real-time On-table Adaptive Radiotherapy. Clinicians from hospitals in Amsterdam and St. Louis, MO will discuss their methodologies and clinical outcomes with the MRIdian® Linac system. MRI-Guided ROAR™ - Real-time On-table Adaptive Radiotherapy represents a new paradigm in the treatment of cancer, providing clinicians with the ability to improve targeting precision and thus deliver higher, and potentially more effective, radiation doses. • Learn how clinicians are adapting the radiation dose in real-time and watching every change/motion near the tumour with high contrast, soft-tissue imaging • Understand the clinical workflow of real-time, on-table adaptive radiotherapy • Hear examples of how MR Image-Guided Radiotherapy allows for personalized radiation therapy treatments and opportunistic dose escalation or de-escalation to avoid toxicity
