MRIdian® Linac Radiation Therapy System from ViewRay

The Loyola Center for Cancer Care & Research at Palos Health South Campus in Orland Park is the first center in Illinois – and only the fifth in the country – to offer a groundbreaking MRI-guided radiation therapy that targets tumors with millimeter precision.

Called MRIdian® Linac, the FDA-cleared, state-of-the-art system delivers radiation precisely to the tumor, even if body functions such as breathing cause the tumor to move during the radiation treatment. The ultra-sharp beam of radiation minimizes damage to surrounding tissue.

The MRI-guided system can be used on any solid tumor, and is especially effective in treating soft tissue tumors in the pancreas, kidney, adrenal glands, liver, brain and central nervous system.
