 April 22, 2013 - The Netherlands Cancer Institute-Antoni van Leeuwenhoek Hospital (NKI-AVL) today signed an agreement with Elekta and Royal Philips Electronics to join a research group to advance the development of technology merging radiation therapy and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technology in a single system.

NKI-AVL is the third member of the research consortium, which will comprise leading radiation oncology centers and clinicians, and already includes the University Medical Center Utrecht and The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center.  The researchers expect a MRI-guided radiation therapy system will provide physicians with exceptional images of a patient’s soft tissues and tumor during radiation therapy.
