MR image-guided radiotherapy treatment on the MR-Linac

MR image guidance is becoming more and more an integral part of the Radiotherapy workflow. In 2016 the ICR and RMH installed the first MR Linac in the UK. In autumn 2018 the first patients were treated with this hybrid device combining a 1.5T MRI scanner with a linear accelerator. An overview of this cutting edge technology and first results will be presented.
