The Game Changer Technology in Cancer Treatment

The World’s Best

Built by Elekta & Philips, the pioneers in the field, MR Linac has the most powerful high-field (1.5 Tesla) MRI system and next-generation linear accelerator technology.

The First in India

Yashoda Hospitals is the First and Only Hospital in India to have this superior, revolutionary technology.

What is MR Linac?

MR Linac (Magnetic Resonance Linear Accelerator) is an innovative technology that combines a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) device with a linear accelerator, offering a groundbreaking approach to cancer treatment. This technology allows for real-time visualisation of the tumour during radiotherapy, providing precise monitoring and positioning of the radiation beams directly over the tumour.


An innovative approach to ensure personalised and optimised care every step of the way.


MR Linac integrates MRI and radiotherapy to treat various types of cancer, particularly those affecting soft tissues. Unlike traditional systems, the MR-Linac delivers radiation beams while simultaneously monitoring the target area using MRI. This unique combination of technologies empowers physicians to have exceptional control over radiation delivery by visualising internal anatomy and the tumour in real time. They can personalise and adapt each treatment with unprecedented precision and accuracy.

By merging a high-strength MRI machine with a linear accelerator, the MR-Linac enables highly accurate radiation treatment in a single device. The MRI component produces high-definition, real-time images of the tumour, while the linear accelerator maintains precise focus on the tumour, delivering targeted high-energy beams. This synergy between MRI and radiotherapy ensures unparalleled accuracy and effectiveness in delivering radiation treatment to patients.

What are the advantages of MR LINAC over Conventional Radiotherapy?

MR Linac technology, a breakthrough in radiotherapy applications, allows for adaptive monitoring of the changes in the size and shape of the tumour before and during treatment, enabling precise delivery of high doses of radiation to the tumour.

With superior imaging capabilities compared to CT, the 1.5 Tesla MR-Linac device provides detailed visualisation of tumours, surrounding tissue, edema, and inflammation. This high-definition MRI-based radiation therapy allows for accurate tumour demarcation and personalised targeting of tumour cells while sparing normal tissue.

The advantages of MR Linac technology lead to significantly improved clinical outcomes, including improved local control, decreased toxicity, and a shorter course of treatment, thereby expanding the scope of radiotherapy.

Key Features

Real Time Visualisation
Real Time Visualisation

Due to body functions or changes in body composition, many tumours move during treatment and in between sessions. With its fast real-time visualisation capabilities, MR Linac helps to continually monitor these changes and re-optimize treatment plans.

Adaptive Personalization
Adaptive Personalization

Every patient has unique treatment needs, and by visualising the tumour's position, size, and shape, MR Linac ensures high-precision tumour targeting while minimising damage to surrounding tissues.

Dynamic Seamless Session

With optimised radiotherapy treatment enabled by real-time visualisation and adaptive personalization, MR Linac is designed to deliver the best possible treatment outcomes.

MR Linac Treatment Plan

When receiving treatment with MR Linac, your clinical team will provide a detailed explanation of the treatment process. Here is a concise overview of what you can expect:




Before starting radiation therapy, your doctor will discuss treatment options, potential side effects, and address your questions or concerns.




Special images of the body's interior using CT scans or MRI scans will provide information about the tumour's location, size, shape, and nearby organs.




The expert team will determine the prescribed radiation dose as well as the precise radiation delivery sites by creating an individualised treatment plan.




At the start of each session, a new MRI scan will be conducted and compared to the planning scans, and adjustments to the treatment plan will be made accordingly.

After each treatment session, you can go home. Following the completion of radiation therapy, regular follow-up appointments will be scheduled for up to five years to monitor your condition. Attending these appointments is crucial, even if you feel well.
