Ingenia solution enhances delineation for RT planning

Best Practice

Beaumont Health System brought MRI into its radiation therapy routine practice by implementing the comprehensive Ingenia 3.0T MR-RT Oncology Configuration.
“The main reason to integrate MR imaging in RT planning is the superb soft tissue contrast that allows detailed delineation of tumors and healthy organs, which is crucial for RT planning,” says Craig W. Stevens MD, PhD. “The good visualization is why a lot of cancer treatments can benefit from MR based treatment planning, because if we can localize a tumor better, we can aim the radiation beam at it better. This potentially allows us to shrink our margins and spare more healthy tissue.”
