Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre treats its first patient with Elekta Unity MR-Linac
Clinical implementation of breakthrough technology that Sunnybrook scientists and physicians helped transform from concept to clinical practice
TORONTO – Elekta (EKTA-B.ST) today announced that the Odette Cancer Centre at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre has treated its first patient using Elekta Unity, a transformative magnetic resonance radiation therapy (MR/RT) system that enables personalized precision radiation therapy. Elekta Unity combines a state-of-the-art 1.5T MRI scanner, a best-in-class 7 MV linear accelerator and breakthrough real-time adaptive radiotherapy software. The combination of these technologies allows the radiation dose to be reshaped based on daily changes in shape, size and position of the tumor and surrounding healthy anatomy, as visualized with MRI, and then enables accurate dose delivery with real-time visualization of the tumor.
