Research projects

Dr Diana Tait, Gastrointestinal Clinical Oncology

We are collaborating with Dr Gert Meijer of the Department of Radiation Oncology at UMC Utrecht, looking at the potential clinical benefit of MRI-guided radiotherapy for oesophageal cancer and highlighting key areas of research for future trials concerning MRI-guided oesophageal cancer treatment.

In conjunction with this collaboration we are currently doing a service evaluation looking at use of MRI to assist in radiotherapy planning for patients with oesophageal and oesophago-gastric cancer.

We are also considering the following future research areas:

  • MR response and evaluation
  • exploration of adaptive planning strategies with MRI (REACT trial)
  • the possibility of a clinical trial to test effectiveness of MR-guided radiotherapy.
