Precise adaptive radiation therapy guided by real-time MRI images could prove a significant advance in radiation oncology. Integrating those two tools is the driving force behind the MRIdian system, a combined real-time MRI and radiation therapy delivery process developed by Cleveland-based ViewRay.
