MRI-Linac Program

Program of research

A principal research theme of the program is to Commissioning and development of a 1st generation MRI-Linac. Key steps include:

  • Commission the MRI-linac for integrated imaging and radiation therapy experiments
    and quantify its performance characteristics
  • Optimise the magnet, gradient coil and radiofrequency system performance.
  • Perform detailed design and system simulation studies of radiation beam generation.
  • Perform detailed measurements to inform future design.
  • Develop rotating couch system to facilitate multibeam treatment for 1st generation system.
