    Realizing the benefits of MRI in the radiotherapy workflow


    Despite MRI’s potential for radiotherapy, integrating the modality into the workflow can present challenges – specifically the novelty of a changed workflow and adjusting to the unique requirements for MRI use in radiation therapy versus as a diagnostic modality only .


    Whether you are looking for  a dedicated system in the RT department or for a shared service with radiology, Philips is committed to facilitating the integration of MRI and to helping you realize the benefits of MRI in radiation therapy.

    Learn how successful implementation of MRI in radiotherapy workflows can open new treatment pathways for patients.

    Discover the benefits of MRI for radiotherapy


    With its exceptional soft-tissue visualization capabilities and wide range of image contrasts, MRI has become a powerful tool to help more precisely define tumor boundaries. This is particularly important as it has been established that there is a high degree of uncertainty in target volume delineation, and it is even reported to represent the largest uncertainty in the entire radiotherapy process for most tumor sites**. Better visualization of the target area and nearby organs-at-risk is a key factor in enhancing target volume delineation. MRI’s expanding role also can be attributed to its functional imaging capabilities, which can inform both target characterization and treatment response.

    Streamline your integration of MRI in the RT workflow

    Ingenia MR-RT

    Ingenia MR-RT


    Ingenia MR-RT is a dedicated MR simulation platform that provides high quality, high contrast MR images acquired with the patient in treatment position. Designed for the needs of radiation oncology, this comprehensive solution provides the tools and software needed for versatile and efficient imaging for radiotherapy planning.
    MR-only simulation

    MR-only simulation


    Innovative MR-only simulation helps you use MRI as the primary imaging modality for planning prostate cancer patients’ treatment, thereby eliminating tedious and error-prone CT-MR registration and simplifying workflows. Available as a plug-in extension to the Ingenia MR-RT platform, MR-only simulation provides high contrast anatomical MR images for target delineation and the density information for dose calculations typically provided by CT.

    RTdrive is an automated workflow solution that streamlines the process from MR imaging to a high quality treatment plan with minimal user input, thus accelerating time to treatment and driving consistency. RTdrive accelerates and automates prostate planning workflows, enabling you to create a treatment plan within 25 minutes* from the start of MR simulation.
    It is very good that we can collaborate with Philips to improve the knowledge on MRI in Radiotherapy in the radiotherapy community"
