Important step towards MR Linac radiotherapy for lung cancer

Researchers working with the MR Linac – a pioneering radiotherapy machine – have successfully developed treatment plans for patients with an advanced form of lung cancer. The plans suggest that treating patients with locally advanced non-small cell lung cancer using the MR Linac system would be at least as effective as using conventional linac radiotherapy. The study represents a key step towards bringing MR Linac radiotherapy to these patients in the clinic.
