Want to learn more on this subject?

Join our webinar with Marcel Nachbar of the University Hospital of Tübingen, one of the first clinical sites to successfully implement the Elekta Unity high-field MR-Linac.

During the webinar, Marcel will talk about the technical and dosimetric challenges of the Elekta Unity system, provide an overview of dedicated PTW equipment and its effective use in clinical routine, and share his experience of establishing a comprehensive quality assurance programme.

Key topics covered in this webinar include:

  • Clinical applications and technical overview of the Elekta Unity high-field MR-Linac.
  • Clinical workflow and current limitations of the Elekta Unity system.
  • Quality assurance in MR-guided radiotherapy:
    – Quality assurance of the MR imaging system for anatomical and functional imaging.
    – Quality assurance of the medical linear accelerator using PTW equipment, including beam data collection; output check; profile check; isocenter check; and patient plan verification.
    – Independent end-to-end testing.

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn more about safe and effective quality assurance in MR-guided radiotherapy.
