Cross Cancer Institute, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada

MagnetTx Oncology Solutions has been formed to commercialize the Linac-MR technology developed at the University of Alberta and Cross Cancer Institute in Edmonton, Alberta Canada. The company has been founded by the inventors – Dr. Gino Fallone and Brad Murray. MagnetTx Oncology Solutions has exclusive rights to negotiate an agreement to license the Linac-MR Technology from Alberta Health Services. The team at the Cross Cancer Institute was the first in the world to show proof of principle in 2008 when they produced MR images concurrently with linac radiation. Subsequently, they have developed a clinical prototype that is currently installed at the Cross Cancer Institute. This will be the basis of the commercial system called the “Aurora RT”.
