MRI in Radiation TherapyEducation and Training

Radiation Oncology is experiencing growth in the use of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) in treatment planning and response assessment. This section aims to support clinical teams in optimizing the workflow and share valuable clinical insights in treatment planning. Below you will find peer-to-peer exchange of protocols and educational videos about how to address different challenges of MRI in Radiation Therapy (RT).

We have compiled a series of study protocols and practical tips and tricks for several body sites from experts for both experts and novice users at the same time, so that everyone can benefit from each-other.


Welcome to the video section about MRI for RT. In this section, you will learn more about the functionality and advantages of MRI and its special use in RT.

Recently there is a growing interest in the use of magnetic resonance imaging in radiation therapy. This is due to the many attractive features for radiation therapy that MRI has to offer.

In this session you will learn about the basic principles of an MRI signal and the different ways it is acquired.

In this advanced module about MRI and how it works, you can have a closer look at how the different contrasts can be obtained, and how the MR image is generated from the Free Induction Decay signals.

In this module you will learn more about the challenges and their solutions in MRI for radiation therapy and get a better understanding of the differences between MRI for diagnostic imaging and RT planning.

In this session, we focus on how the magnet and gradient design of an MRI system influences high resolution and low distortion combined with a large field of view as the key requirements for MR imaging in Radiation Therapy.

We will have a closer look at the gradient and Radio Frequency coils and how they can help to solve the specific challenges of using MRI in Radiation Therapy.

This session explains how the MR sequences and their special variants can help overcome the challenges faced when using MR imaging in Radiation Therapy.

Get to know more about how to ensure a consistent and high image quality, how a MR system is installed correctly and what kind of safety precautions need to be taken to ensure a safe use of the system.
