Replacement of a CT-simulator with an MRI-simulator within a radiation oncology department

Authors:

This article describes the replacement of a CT-simulator with an MRI-simulator for radiation therapy planning. The inherent limitations of space and site configuration when adapting an existing area have been accommodated in the design. Ready access to, and control over the MRI-simulator will allow for the increased utilization of MRI in treatment planning, response monitoring and treatment adaptation.
