Elekta and Philips Gain MD Anderson Cancer Center as Collaborator in Research Consortium on MRI-Guided Radiation Therapy
Date:1/24/2013

ATLANTA, Jan. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Elekta (NSE: EKTAb) and Royal Philips Electronics (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA) announced today that The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center (Houston, Texas) has signed an agreement to join a research group to advance the development of an innovative image-guided treatment technology for cancer care. The technology merges radiation therapy and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technology in a single system. MD Anderson is the second member of the research consortium, which will comprise leading radiation oncology centers and clinicians, and already includes the University Medical Center Utrecht (the Netherlands).

Uniting state-of-the-art MRI with a cutting edge radiation therapy system – thus creating an MRI-guided radiation therapy system – will provide physicians with exceptional images of a patient's soft tissues and tumor during radiation therapy. This breakthrough innovation also aims to enable clinicians to adapt treatment delivery in real time for the most precise cancer treatments possible.

"The special capabilities of the MRI-guided radiation therapy system – MR-based soft tissue imaging performed simultaneously with treatment delivery – could revolutionize cancer care," says Jay Hoey , Executive Vice President, Elekta North America . "Patients are the ultimate winners, because MR imaging will help put the therapeutic radiation right on target, with the potential to avoid exposure to normal tissues. My colleagues at Elekta, Philips and University Medical Center Utrecht are thrilled to welcome MD Anderson to the research consortium, which will profit immensely from this center's high-caliber medical, technological and patient care expertise."

"MRI is the gold standard modality for imaging soft tissues, and MR imaging of the cance
