MR/RT, precision radiation medicine: Elekta Unity, European clinical practices

Presented by

Dr Baukelien Van Triest and Dr Tine Shytte

About this talk

Elekta Unity, the only high-field MR-linac, is introducing diagnostic-quality MR images to radiation therapy. Never before have clinicians had the ability to see crystal-clear, high-field MR images while the radiation dose is being delivered. The live images help to keep the radiation directly on target, even if the tumour is moving and changing shape, size or location, during the treatment. This solves a long-standing, unmet need by allowing clinicians to clearly see the tumour during treatment rather than relying on images acquired before the treatment. Diagnostic-quality soft-tissue imaging provides more information on anatomy and pathology, and will enable more effective clinical decision-making. Precise visual differentiation of tumour from nearby healthy tissue allows clinicians to confidently see and track the exact location of a tumour in real time. During this webinar, clinical experts will share their experience with Elekta Unity and how it is redefining the way cancer is treated.
