Aurora RT™ is an integrated medical linear accelerator with an MR Imager for precise treatment. The Aurora RT utilizes simultaneous treatment with soft tissue imaging. The Aurora RT uses a unique patented design which almost eliminates the interference between the Linac and the MR. Specifically, the magnetic field of the MR unit is provided by a cryogen free bi-planar magnet which rotates. The linac is oriented to be parallel to the magnetic field of the MR unit. The radiation beam is directed through the center of the coils along their common axis, and the entire system rotates together.
This new machine, the Aurora RT, will change the way cancer patients are treated. Imaging will be clearer and done in real time while delivering radiation in the most precise and accurate manner.
