While the MRIdian system offers wonderful clinical advantages it also possesses unique capabilities to create a treatment movie for the patient – producing an individual “MRIdian Movie” for each patient. The live MRI imaging allows for the system to capture a real-time recording of the treatment process while the patient undergoes his or her own radiation therapy.
Many patients have expressed an interest in seeing their own MRIdian Movie and treatment centers are beginning to share this footage with their patients. The MRIdian Movie allows doctors to show patients firsthand how the sophisticated imaging made possible by the MRIdian system interacts with their own radiotherapy treatment—and how these two powerful resources are working together to fight their cancer! Clinicians have observed that sharing the MRIdian Movie with their patients helps give them a much better understanding of the complexities of their radiation treatment. This enables the patient to feel better informed and educated regarding their own radiotherapy treatment.
