MR Linac at St Vincents

11 Jun 2020

Professor Stricker and radiation oncologist Dr Jeremy De Leon head up the MR Linac care team at the GenesisCare specialist cancer centre.

Professor Stricker stated that he was very impressed with the possibilities of this new device, the Elekta Unity. He explained that by combining MRI technology with radiation it would become possible to target tumours with high-precision in real-time. And that the chances of healthy tissue being damaged were significantly reduced, which would help avoid unwanted sife effects.

St Vincents Hospital. Darlinghurst, now has a dedicated facility for MR Linac radiation therapy. Dr Stricker welcomes enquiries as to whether MR Linac is the right treatment option for a patient
