The next wave in MR-Sim: Accelerating the use of MRI in radiotherapy planning and treatment delivery

Tuesday 9 October 2018 | 09:00 - 17:00
The Christie Education Centre, Manchester

Discover what the future holds for advanced imaging in Radiation Therapy!


Join us at our annual study day which will focus on the implementation and potential of new MR advanced imaging techniques for both treatment planning and delivery. A highlight of this year’s programme includes an exploration of the role of the MR-Linac for therapy guidance. The development of this exciting solution has been a joint collaboration between Elekta, Philips and the MRL consortium. Speakers will be drawn from the international collaboration group to deliver presentations focusing on the implementation and potential of the new technology in the clinical setting.

Spaces are limited. Don’t miss out – register your interest today!
