Design and simulation of a short, 10 MV, variable energy linear accelerator for use in linac-MR systemsDownload
Hybrid linac-MR devices are currently being designed and constructed by several groups around the world which combine a linear accelerator with an MRI in order to enable real-time 3D imaging to visualize tumor movement during external beam radiotherapy treatments. Each of the current systems is...
A prototype system which has integrated a linear accelerator (linac) with a magnetic resonance imager (MRI) has been constructed at the Cross Cancer Institute. The real time operation of a linac-MRI system will require proper radio frequency (RF) shielding such that the MRI images can be acquired...
