Safely treating lung tumors with ablative doses can be challenging, from central and ultra central to single fraction requires a new level of precision and accuracy. See how Amsterdam University Medical Center is using MRIdian to treat smarter with ablative doses that work harder to destroy tumors and spare healthy tissues. Join this webinar where they will share their experience treating lung cancer with single fraction SABR. With the potential to improve outcomes, reduce side effects and deliver better patient quality of life, is this the future of cancer care? Come see what you may be missing.
