Integration of linear accelerator technology with a high field MR imaging system.
Elekta, in cooperation with UMC Utrecht and Philips, is currently developing the MR Linac, a transformative radiation delivery system that integrates next-generation linear-accelerator technology with a high-field (1.5 tesla) MR imaging system. The MR Linac is designed to allow clinicians to visualize tumors in real time as they treat. The technical challenges that have been overcome to achieve this objective will be presented, as well as the new clinical opportunities created by the MR Linac.
