A new paradigm in radiation oncology
Magnetic resonance image-guided radiation therapy, or MRIgRT, is the most exciting new development in advanced radiation therapy for years. MRIgRT combines two technologies, a state-of-the-art 1.5T MRI scanner and a best-in-class 7 MV linear accelerator, driven by real-time adaptive radiation therapy software.
The technology offers MRIgRT treatment placing GenesisCare at the forefront of patient-centric cancer care. High field diagnostic-quality MRI is an option that provides unparalleled soft tissue contrast and real-time visualisation to enable truly personalised radiation therapy, for every patient, every time.
Elekta Unity MR-Linac allows our radiation oncologists to adapt the radiation therapy every day as well as real-time target monitoring. This gives our team the visual confidence to reduce treatment margins, minimising the risk to healthy tissue, and expanding treatment options to those complex hard-to-treat cancers previously not possible.
