MR Radiation Oncology Suite

Our MR Radiation Oncology Suite provides the tools designed to help you better target and treat tumors through consistent patient positioning.

When combined with the advanced capabilities of wide-bore magnetic resonance imaging, our MR Radiation Oncology Suite may help you more effectively characterize disease, plan treatment options, target tumors, preserve healthy tissue and assess response to therapy. Moreover, it also helps minimize potential registration errors between MR and CT within treatment plans. We designed patient-positioning packages for a broad range of tumor treatments, including brain, head and neck, prostate and gynecological. These packages offer you the freedom to purchase only what you need now, providing the flexibility you need to meet budget and clinical needs.
