MAGNETOM RT Pro edition for MAGNETOM Vida
The time is now for MR in RT with BioMatrix
MRI utilization in radiation therapy treatment planning has seen steady growth over the past decade. This trend is continuing and has been embraced by many physicists and physicians alike: Between 2006 and 2016 its utilization in radiotherapy planning increased from 6% to 25%.1 The MAGNETOM RT pro edition for MAGNETOM Vida, the first MR scanner with the revolutionary BioMatrix Technology, addresses the challenges of patient variability and achieves high-quality MR imaging in the RT treatment position. Thanks to an all-new magnet and system architecture, MAGNETOM Vida delivers excellent soft-tissue contrast as well as imaging that can yield information for physicians regarding tumor extent and functional parameters.
