Magnetic Resonance in Radiotherapy Webinar 3

The topic for this third in a series of four webinars is: MR in RT from an International Perspective

The use of Magnetic Resonance Imaging in Radiotherapy is continuously growing. Many institutions see the introduction of MRI examinations for RT planning as a natural expansion of the MRI diagnostic services which does not require a very large investment, while others prefer to have MRI scanners totally dedicated to Radiotherapy Planning. In either case this hybrid service has specific needs which must be addressed with input from both MRI and Radiotherapy professionals.

This webinar series discusses the adaptations to patient positioning and MRI protocols required for the provision of this service, the governance requirements to ensure MR Safety is maintained and recommendations for Quality Assurance. The ultimate goal of this webinar series is to support Clinical Scientists, Radiographers, Radiologists and Oncologists in developing and maintaining the high standards a service of MRI for RT planning requires. The webinar series will detail the recommendations of the MR in External Beam Radiotherapy Working Party (Phys Med Biol2021 Feb 25;66(5). doi: 10.1088/1361-6560/abdc30.) making it accessible to its typical users.

Richard Speight will lead this third webinar on MR in RT from an International Perspective and will be joined by Carri Glide-Hurst.

Carri Glide-Hurst, PhD, DABR, FAAPM is a Tenured Associate Professor in the Department of Human Oncology and serves as the Director of Radiation Oncology Physics at the University of Wisconsin.  Over the last decade, Dr. Glide-Hurst’s primary areas of research and clinical expertise include magnetic resonance simulation (MR-SIM), MR-only radiation therapy, MR-guided radiation therapy, and adaptive radiation therapy.  Her most recent research interests are in cardiotoxicity and longitudinal functional MRI.  She has spearheaded efforts for establishing national and international guidelines for safe integration into clinical practice including co-chairing AAPM Task Group 284 on the implementation of MR-SIM in Radiation Oncology and TG-352 on MR-linacs.
