General InformationWith MR-Linac Unity technology, your doctor can "see" the tumor tissue more clearly and adjust the radiation dose during treatment according to the daily changes of your organs. While the required dose is applied to the existing tumor, it ensures that the treatment is more effective than ever, as it can safely deliver radiation without damaging the surrounding tissues. This treatment, which protects normal tissues better, reduces the number of sessions and creates a comfort zone for the patient.
Personalized Treatment: MR-Linac Unity Can Be Used For Patients Who Can Enter a 1.5 Tesla MR Device and Need Radiotherapy
With its fine-detail imaging capabilities, MR-Linac Unity provides a clear image that separates tumor tissue from normal tissue for radiation therapy planning and treatment administration. In addition, it allows excellent soft tissue visualization in tumors located in the brain, neck and abdomen, while tracking the tumor and normal tissues with precision throughout the treatment with its real-time imaging features.
MR-Linac Unity allows doctors to see a tumor clearly and to plan a precise treatment based on the current condition of the tumor.
Current technology provides previously hard-to-get real-time information with tumor location, organ function, and therapeutic targeting, allowing doctors to more conveniently monitor a tumor while treating a patient.
Especially; The response of the tumor to radiotherapy can be predicted by evaluating the dynamic changes that occur in the tumor during radiotherapy in rectum, liver, head and neck and brain tumors. (The only MR-linac approved by the FDA in this regard is Unity)
Treatment Response Assessment
This predictability provides data on the direction of treatment in all tumor types and especially after radiotherapy in brain tumors.
Areas where MR-Linac Unity is Effective65% of all cancers occur in the lung, prostate, colorectum, stomach, liver, breast and cervix. And 6/7 of these cancer types have soft tissue anatomy that is difficult to visualize.
Radiotherapy treatments are a process that requires cooperation with Medical Oncology Physicians, and this treatment is very valuable for metastatic cancer types. MR Linac Unity technology primarily; It is effective in the following types of tumors, including lung, prostate, intra-abdominal tumors, liver tumors and metastases, pancreatic cancers.
