Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) provides superior soft tissue contrast compared to computerised tomography and is often used in the diagnosis of cancer. With advancing technology, MRI is being introduced to improve the accuracy of radiotherapy planning, aid precise targeting of radiotherapy delivery and assess responses to treatment. This session will cover the uses of MR-image guided radiotherapy, clinical applications of multi-parametric MRI and the role of functional MRI in radiotherapy response assessment.
