MR Linac: first healthy volunteer scanned in pioneering new radiotherapy machine

The first healthy volunteer has been scanned using a revolutionary new type of radiotherapy machine, which is set to transform cancer treatment by allowing radiation to be aimed at tumours with extreme precision. The scan is part of the initial trials of the MR Linac. The machine’s technology allows for magnetic resonance images to be generated at the same time as X-ray radiation beams are delivered to the tumour.
