Our team of experienced radiation oncologists will determine if you are a potential candidate for MRIdian® MRI-guided radiation therapy or if you might be best suited for another therapy.
MRIdian® Treatment – MRI-Guided Radiation
New technology now available at Orlando Health allows for more precise treatment of cancer tumors through real-time magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) during radiation beam therapy.
Called MRIdian®, the system enables doctors to see a tumor’s exact location as they are treating it, instead of relying on static imaging results taken days or even minutes before patient’s radiation session.
Orlando Health UF Health Cancer Center is the only healthcare facility in Central Florida, and only the sixth in the nation, to offer this new, advanced treatment option. MRIdian therapy is available at the newly opened Orlando Health – Health Central Hospital location of Orlando Health UF Health Cancer Center.
The Benefits of MRIdian Treatment
For patients, MRI-guided radiation therapy offers several advantages over traditional radiation treatment:
- Allows for more precise treatment of tumors through real-time magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
- Offers safer treatment by decreasing radiation to healthy tissue
- Can expose patients to less radiation to moving adjacent organs
