RTi3 Post-Conference Workshop

MRI Guided Radiation Therapy

Hosted in partnership with the Ontario Association of Medical Radiation Sciences

Date: March 5, 2017
Location: Terrance Room

The transition towards personalized medicine in radiation therapy requires high precision imaging at all stages: simulation, treatment planning, and treatment delivery. The introduction and integration of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) as a tool to assist in soft-tissue definition has greatly impacted and will continue to improve radiation therapy practice. The RTi3 Post-Conference workshop on “MRI Guided Radiation Therapy” will introduce participants to:   

Back to Basics – What is MRI?

  • Describe the physics of Magnetic Resonance Imaging
  • Understand the process of standard image acquisition
  • Discuss safety concerns with the use of MR

Interpreting MRI Images in Radiation Therapy

  • Explore the role of MR Imaging in the context of radiation therapy treatment planning
  • Examine and critique MR Imaging for key oncology sites 

Application of MR in Radiation Therapy Treatment

  • Understand the potential benefits of an integrated MRI and linear accelerator
  • Address practice challenges of the MRI Linac
