Moffitt Cancer Center's new technology tracks tumors in real-time
Moffitt Cancer Center's new technology tracks tumors in real-time; helps decrease radiation side effects!
This technology is a combination of an MRI scanner and a traditional Linear Accelerator, one that allows us to see where the tumor is in real-time and where normal anatomy is in real-time.
“By tracking the tumor and only turning the treatment on when the tumor is in the exact right position, we hope we can decrease side effects and be more precise in our treatment for patients.” — Stephen Rosenberg, MD, MRI Director at Moffitt Cancer Center.
