MRIs are being used to guide radiation treatment for cancer patients, so yes MRIs are doing their part to eliminate cancer.
This method of using the MRI to guide the radiation allows for better precision and accuracy for cancer treatment. With better precision allows for less toxicity for healthy parts of the body during radiation.
Right now, only several hospitals around the country have this technology, but hopefully these treatments can expand to more facilities in the future. It is also more expensive than traditional treatment right now, but with the better precision it ought to eventually offset costs of ineffective and unnecessary treatment that traditional methods sometimes cause.
At Sound Imaging, we offer the best products for treatments such as these. For a patient undergoing this treatment, our accessory line, SAMM M.D. and MRI Stereo, offer comfort and relaxation. SAMM M.D. is our CCTV system that allows for precise patient movement monitoring, and MRI Stereo offers music, relaxation, and communication to the technician. We also offer any parts, coils, and services to keep your MRI running at its best.
