MR Guided Adaptive Radiation Therapy; three years of clinical experience at VUmc
MR-guided radiation therapy (MRgRT) is a novel and rapidly expanding treatment approach which has been clinically implemented at VUmc Amsterdam since early 2016. In addition to MR-based setup, it offers the potential for real-time target tracking during treatment, marker-less gated delivery, and if indicated, plan re-optimization to generate an optimal ´plan of the day’ for each fraction. MRgRT workflow, benefits, limitations, indications as well as early clinical results will be presented.
