MRI-based radiotherapy presented at AAPM

– Use of MRI in radiotherapy is attracting interest. Two national projects has made Sweden a leading nation in this field – the Swedish Testbed for Innovative Radiotherapy and Gentle Radiotherapy.

So says Tufve Nyholm who was speaking to 150-200 American hospital physicists at the annual congress of AAPM* in Austin, USA. Tufve Nyholm is leading the testbed’s sub-project MRI-based radiotherapy.

– I presented the technical requirements for and possible solutions to the problem taken up in the sub-project, namely how to carry out dosage planning based directly on MRI data.
