The Christie charity is raising funds to develop a revolutionary MR LINAC that will enable us to deliver more targeted, more personalised, more advanced radiotherapy for our patients.
The MR LINAC will give our clinicians the ability to see tumours more clearly than ever before. The clarity will allow us to treat cancerous cells and reduce damage to the normal, healthy tissue which surrounds tumours, helping to minimise the damage. Built-in CT scanners will help lessen patients’ side effects such as nausea, lethargy and soreness. We can bring the very latest, most advanced technology right here to The Christie – and target cancer cells with even greater precision than current CT scanners can ever offer.
