Following the rapid adoption of MRI in radiation therapy, Siemens Healthineers has developed tailored solutions that also address those departments that have traditionally used CT imaging alone. On these pages of the MAGNETOM World we aim to increase peer-to-peer exchange of practices and to demonstrate how MAGNETOM users around the world are tackling the challenges posed by the introduction of MRI in the radiotherapy routine.
