Innovations in Radiotherapy and Radiology at Henry Ford Hospital

To improve radiation therapy outcomes, Henry Ford Hospital wanted direct visualization of tumors during therapy using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). It purchased a ViewRay MRIdian linear accelerator (linac) system (created by UF startup ViewRay) in 2017 and its staff is active in research involving MRI-guided radiotherapy. 

ITN toured the system installed at the Henry Ford Medical Center — Cottage location. We spoke with Benjamin Movsas, M.D., chair of radiation oncology at Henry Ford Cancer Institute, who described the benefits the department has realized from using the first U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved MRI-guided radiation therapy system in the VIDEO: Clinical Use of the ViewRay MRIdian Linac System at Henry Ford.
