MRIdian allows physicians to record the level of radiation exposure that the tumor has received and adapt the prescription as needed. ViewRay believes this combination of enhanced visualization, on-line adapting and accurate dose recording will significantly improve the safety and efficacy of radiation therapy, leading to better outcomes for patients.
