The MR Linac Unit

The MR Linac machine combines two technologies — an MRI scanner and a linear accelerator — to precisely locate tumours, tailor the shape of X-ray beams in real time, and accurately deliver doses of radiation even to moving tumours.

Located at the Sutton site of the ICR and The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust, the MR Linac Unit is the first of its kind in the UK and only the fourth in the world. This page collects together recent news and video regarding this groundbreaking technology which will be used to precisely locate tumours and accurately deliver doses of radiation.
