Title: TU-A-BRF-01: MR Guided Radiation Therapy

In recent years, there has been an increasing interest in the development of new technologies focused on the deeper integration of MR in radiotherapy. The innovations span from image data acquisition and post-processing to clinical implementation of MR-guided RT systems and workflow development. The session is intended to provide a review of the key and most recent advancements. Targeted discussions will cover topics which currently define the concept of MR-guided radiotherapy including a) system commissioning, quality control and safety, b) MR data manipulation for dose computations and treatment simulation, c) quantification/management of organ motion and treatment delivery guidance. Learning Objectives: Understand the concept and specifics of MR-guided radiotherapy; Understand the requirements for system integration in clinical workflow; Become familiar with the proposed strategies for system commissioning, RT planning and delivery guidance.
