MR/RT for precision radiation medicine: see what you treat with Elekta Unity

Presented by

Jihong Wang and Daniel Zips

About this talk

A new class of radiation devices is emerging, and it has the potential to transform how cancer is treated through more precise tumor targeting and adapting treatment at the time of delivery. High-field MR-linac technology integrates the power of state-of-the-art MR imaging with precision radiation technology. It can deliver precisely-targeted radiation doses while simultaneously capturing the highest-quality MR images. This will allow clinicians to visualize tumors and the surrounding healthy tissue at any time during radiation delivery, and then adapt the treatment accordingly. High-field MR-linac devices based on diagnostic-standard MRI technology will offer many avenues for exploring improvements in radiotherapy, such as shorter treatment regimens or targeted adaption of the treatment in real time. Also, by integrating precision radiation and MRI technologies, high-field MRI capabilities can be optimally explored to help bring personalized cancer care to radiation therapy. During this webinar, clinical experts will share their experience with Elekta Unity.
