“Solid Tumor Imaging MRâ€Linac (STIM Study)”
The use of MRI imaging and image fusion in radiation therapy has dramatically increased during the past decade. However, the existing MRI-imaging protocols, imaging software and pulse sequences are all optimized for diagnostic purposes. With the introduction of the MR-linac, there is a critical and imminent need to develop imaging protocols that build and adapt the existing imaging parameters within the scope of the FDA-approved software to acquire MRI images that have less geometric distortion and better spatial resolution.
Device - MRI Scan
The MRI scan will not be used for diagnostic purposes. The research team members do not use the sequences for detection of clinical conditions. This is an observational study only, with no interventions.
