Important Safety Information
Indications for Use (IFU): The MRIdian Linac system, with magnetic resonance imaging capabilities, is intended to provide stereotactic radiosurgery and precision radiotherapy for lesions, tumors, and conditions anywhere in the body where radiation treatment is indicated. The MRIdian Linac System is not appropriate for all patients, including those who are not candidates for magnetic resonance imaging.
Important Safety Information (ISI): Radiation treatments may cause side effects that can vary depending on the part of the body being treated. The most frequent ones are typically temporary and may include, but are not limited to, irritation to the respiratory, digestive, urinary or reproductive systems; fatigue; nausea; skin irritation; and hair loss. In some patients, side effects can be severe. Treatment sessions may vary in complexity and duration.
Radiation treatment is not appropriate for all cancers. You should discuss the potential for side effects and their severity as well as the benefits of radiation and magnetic resonance imaging with your doctor to make sure radiation treatment is right for you.

Only On MRIdian
James Good, MD, Clinical Director of SBRT, GenesisCare Oxford
Patient: 54-yo female; ER(+) HER2(-) primary breast tumor, previously Tx w/ lumpectomy and post-op RT; presented with 3 liver mets on FDG PET and MRI
Treatment Options: Surgery too risky, not able to get complete disease; standard radiation not an option
Challenge: Lesion location: Very susceptible to motion; requires complex setup w/ abdominal compression and fiducials; movement up to 2 cm would lead to large ITV and irradiating healthy tissue; conventional Linac would compromise PTV dose to meet OAR constraints; likely reduce overall dose to avoid exceeding mean liver tolerance
MRIdian: 35 Gy in 5 Fx, keeping OARs in tolerance; daily adaptation for ablative dose to tumor while keeping critical structures within tolerance; real-time automated beam gating with patient directed breath-hold allowed accurate dose delivery
Outcome: Able to deliver 50 Gy to three lesions. Three-month follow-up shows clear ablation zone and elimination of tumor

“One and done”: Treating Multiple Oligetastatic Lesions
Michael Chuong, MD, Director, MR-Guided Radiation Therapy and Proton Therapy, Miami Cancer Institute
Patient: 65-yo male diagnosed with Stage-1 NSCLC
Treatment Options: Surgery vs. standard 5 fx SBRT (patient declined surgery)
Challenge: Infection risk to compromised cancer patient; similar patient would be treated in 5 Fx, increasing number of healthcare encounters (and risk of exposure to COVID-19 in these times)
MRIdian: Confidence to deliver 34 Gy in 1 Fx; breath-hold delivery with visual feedback to maintain chest wall dose constraints; 3 mm PTV margins, automated beam gating for intrafraction motion; total treatment time 40 min door-to-door
Outcome: Patient doing well, no acute toxicities reported, opportunity to treat multiple oligomets in different location efficiently with single fraction option
