Research overview

We aim to develop MRI techniques for radiotherapy with particular application to the UK’s first MR-Linac, which has been treating patients at the ICR and the Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust since September 2018.

Our research interests include characterising the daily anatomical variation for treatment adaptation and implementing functional imaging techniques, such as diffusion-weighted / intra-voxel incoherent motion (IVIM) MRI to inform cancer therapy by assessing and predicting treatment response.

Our team are exploring deep-learning based image reconstruction techniques to achieve the short processing times required for “online” treatment adaptation, while at the same time meeting the high requirements of MRI in radiotherapy regarding geometric accuracy and spatial resolution.
