MR-guided radiation therapy (MRgRT) has been running routine clinical practice. However, MRgRT requires robust imaging spatial integrity to achieve accurate dose calculations and high-quality plan delivery.

Throughout this webinar, we will review how to characterize the spatial integrity of 1.5T MRI and 0.35T MR-LINAC using QUASAR™ MRID3D Geometric Distortion Analysis System in radiation oncology.

Taeho Kim, PhD, DABR, is an associate professor of radiation oncology and joined the medical physics faculty in 2018. He currently has two primary interests in medical physics research: MRI-guided radiotherapy and respiratory motion management in clinical practice. Kim received his PhD in physics in 2007 from Washington University in St Louis. He completed two post-doctoral fellowships, one in MRI (radiology, University of Utah) and the other in radiation therapy (radiation oncology, Stanford University). He completed his medical physics residency in the CAMPEP-accredited medical physics programme at the University of Virginia. He worked on several medical physics research projects including respiratory motion management using MRI-guided audiovisual biofeedback, an integrated MRI-linear accelerator project, and quasi-breath-hold biofeedback in radiation oncology. He has extensive clinical research experience in medical physics and MRI from several universities.
