AIMS Magnetic resonance image-guided radiotherapy (MRIgRT) has been clinically implemented since 2014. This technology offers improved soft-tissue visualisation, daily imaging, and intra-fraction real-time imaging without added radiation exposure, and the opportunity for adaptive radiotherapy (ART) to adjust for anatomical changes. Here we share the longest single-institution experience with MRIgRT, focusing on trends and changes in use over the past 4.5 years. MATERIALS AND METHODS We… Expand
The Role of MRI-Guided Radiation Therapy for Palliation of Mobile Abdominal Cancers: A Report of Two Cases
TLDR
This work presents two cases where standard x-ray image guidance would have failed due to abdominal target mobility, and where MRI-guided radiotherapy with online plan adaptation enabled effective treatment. Expand
First 500 Fractions Delivered with a Magnetic Resonance-guided Radiotherapy System: Initial Experience
Objectives Improved soft-tissue visualization, afforded by magnetic resonance imaging integrated into a radiation therapy linear accelerator-based radiation delivery system (MR-linac) promisesExpand
Medical physics challenges in clinical MR-guided radiotherapy
TLDR
Although several challenges exist, the intrinsic benefits of MRgRT will provide a deeper understanding of dose delivery effects on an individual basis, with the potential for further treatment personalization. Expand
Use of magnetic resonance imaging-guided radiotherapy for breast cancer: a scoping review protocol
TLDR
The evidence surrounding MRI-guided radiotherapy for breast cancer will consolidate the evidence, contributing to the development and optimisation of patient selection, simulation, planning, treatment delivery, quality assurance and research, to help improve patient outcomes, cancer care and treatment for women with breast cancer. Expand
Magnetic resonance‐guided radiation therapy: A review
TLDR
MRgRT can potentially transform radiation oncology by improving tumour control and quality of life after radiation therapy and increasing convenience of treatment by shortening treatment courses for patients, according to a review of current implementations, studies, potential benefits and challenges.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging for Breast Tumor Bed Delineation: Computed Tomography Comparison and Sequence Variation
Purpose Our purpose was to investigate the interobserver variability in breast tumor bed delineation using magnetic resonance (MR) compared with computed tomography (CT) at baseline and to quantifyExpand
First prospective clinical evaluation of feasibility and patient acceptance of magnetic resonance-guided radiotherapy in Germany
TLDR
MRgRT was successfully implemented in the clinic and well tolerated by all patients, despite MR-related complaints and complaints about uncomfortable immobilization, according to patient-reported outcome questionnaires. Expand
Magnetic Resonance-Guided Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy of Liver Tumors: Initial Clinical Experience and Patient-Reported Outcomes
TLDR
Initial results are promising with excellent local control and only mildest toxicity, however, prospective studies are warranted to truly assess the potential of MR-guided liver SBRT and to identify which patients profit most from this new versatile technology. Expand
MR-Guided Adaptive Radiotherapy for Bladder Cancer
TLDR
The technical challenges of bladder radiotherapy are examined and how magnetic resonance (MR) guided radiotherapy (MRgRT) could be leveraged with the aim of improving bladder cancer patient outcomes are explored. Expand
Abdominal synthetic CT reconstruction with intensity projection prior for MRI-only adaptive radiotherapy.
OBJECTIVE Owing to the superior soft tissue contrast of MRI, MRI-guided adaptive radiotherapy (ART) is well-suited to managing interfractional changes in anatomy. An MRI-only workflow is desirable,Expand

TLDR
Low-field MR provides better anatomic visualization of many radiotherapy targets and most OARs as compared to OB-CT, and further studies with OB-MRI should be pursued. Expand

TLDR
Midtreatment adaptive planning based on tumor response may be dosimetrically advantageous for sparing of surrounding critical structures in HSRT for central thorax malignancies and could be applied using either an online or offline paradigm. Expand
Daily Tracking of Glioblastoma Resection Cavity, Cerebral Edema, and Tumor Volume with MRI-Guided Radiation Therapy
TLDR
Daily MRI of three postoperative patients undergoing RT and temozolomide for glioblastoma over a six-week course allowed for the identification of changes to the cavity, edema, and visible tumor on a daily basis, suggesting that daily MRI could be used for onboard resimulation and adaptive RT for future fluctuations in the sizes of brain tumors, cavities, or cystic components.
