User experience of MRIdian LINAC commissioning and QA with the THALES 3D MR SCANNER

Join the audience for a live webinar at 11 a.m. CET on 30 November 2021 with Dr. Thierry Gevaert and Dr. Thierry Mertens.


The market introduction of the MR-LINAC technology improves the patient care via the real time imaging of the targeted PTVs. Conventional Water Phantoms with ferromagnetic material become prohibited due to safety reasons. To overcome this situation LAP introduced the MR-compatible Water Phantom THALES 3D MR SCANNER. In this webinar Dr. Thierry Gevaert, medical physicist, coordinator at the UZ Brussel institute will share his experience with the THALES 3D MR SCANNER during the commissioning of the MRIdian Linac of Viewray. Furthermore, he will highlight which benefits played an important role for his clinical workflow. During the webinar you will also learn more about the THALES technology for commissioning and quality assurance processes of conventional Linacs.
