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.
