Installation initiated for Elekta’s high-field MR-linac at The Institute of Cancer Research, London, and The Royal Marsden

Elekta, Royal Philips, The Institute of Cancer Research and The Royal Marsden, recently began installation of the first high-field MR-linac system in the UK. Later this year the system will be operating in a non-clinical capacity. Elekta’s MR-linac integrates an ultramodern radiotherapy system and a high-field MRI scanner with sophisticated software that allows a physician to capture diagnostic quality images of tumorus and surrounding tissue during radiation delivery allowing physicians to rapidly assess and respond by modifying the radiation treatment, a responsive intervention approach.
