MR imaging is well-known for its exquisite soft-tissue contrast. Though state-of-the-art linear accelerators (LINAC) have Cone Beam CT (CBCT) image guidance, they also have challenges: low contrast and CT images can’t be captured concurrently with the beam delivery.
The advanced Aurora-RT™* is different — it smartly combines high-quality MR images with a 6 MV linear accelerator. Our machine provides excellent images before treatment for accurate patient alignment — and its real-time MR imaging during beam delivery allows prior gating of tumor-tracking features. These designs make the Aurora-RT perfectly suited for adaptive radiotherapy.
*The Aurora RT is FDA approved for sale in the United States market.
"Having led the research and development of the Bi-planar linac-MR since its inception, it is an incredible thrill to commercialize and witness its clinical advantages in use."
