The Next Generation of LINAC-MR

PATIENT COMFORT

+
NO ELECTRON RETURN EFFECT

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 technology for Aurora RT is in development and is not yet available for sale for clinical use.
