The ViewRay MRIdian Linac is a radiation therapy system that provides continuous high-contrast imaging of soft tissue during treatment. This helps clinicians position the patient, adjust treatment and track patient motion for accurate treatment.
The ViewRay MRIdian Linac system combines a 0.35 Tesla MR scanner with a linear accelerator-based 6 megavolt photon beam. The MRIdian is the world’s only FDA-cleared delivery system to combine MR image guidance with a linear accelerator delivery platform. The MRIdian system delivers continuous high-contrast imaging of soft tissues to aid the treatment team in the precise alignment of targets and nearby organs and enables adaptive treatment planning using high-quality 3D MR imaging. The system features a double-focused multi-leaf collimator (MLC) with an effective projected leaf size around 4 mm. The MRIdian system is capable of delivering treatments correlated with the patient’s breathing motion.
The MRIdian Linac is located at University Hospital in Treatment Room E.
