Design of a Whole-Body Radio Frequency Coil for image-guided radiotherapy treatment in a MRI-LINAC system


INTRODUCTION: Radiotherapy is a primary cancer treatment modality. However, targeting a radiation beam on tumours in moving organs such as liver, stomach or lungs, without damaging healthy tissue can be challenging. For this reason, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Linear Accelerator (LINAC) are being combined as a MRI-LINAC, a new image-guided… (More)
