Almost all clinics, small and large, use magnetic resonance images (MRI) in their treatment-planning workflows. Modern treatment planning requires images of high geometric fidelity with high spatial and contrast resolution to delineate disease extent and proximity to adjacent organs at risk. However, imaging protocols needed for accurate treatment planning differ significantly fromthose used in diagnostic radiology. As the integration of MRI into radiation oncology is expanding rapidly, a need exists to highlight the considerations for safe and effective implementation. This webinar will describe the major differences from diagnostic MRI, provide an overview of MRI safety and training models, introduce clinical-workflow considerations, and describe the development of a robust quality-assurance programme. Special considerations for motion management and treatment planning will be described.
