Top UK NHS cancer centre chooses Mirada Medical’s technology to further improve confidence in radiotherapy patient care

Mirada Medical is proud and excited about the opportunity to work with the clinicians and physicists at The Christie hospital in Manchester, England, a World‐renowned centre for complete cancer care. The Christie is the only UK hospital that will be treating cancer patients with proton therapy & MRI guided linear accelerators (LINAC), whilst benefiting from the latest advancements in diagnostics with PET/MRI, making it one of the most comprehensive cancer centres. With Mirada specialising in software to enable collaboration between departments and treatment methods, this is a natural relationship that will support fundamental changes in treatment protocols, reducing time to treatment whilst improving clinical confidence and efficacy.

“We have chosen Mirada as strategic partner to develop multimodality imaging solutions because of the quality of their software, allowing rapid translation of novel techniques into our clinic while also providing the possibility to efficiently integrate workflows for the different treatment techniques that are available at our site,” said Professor Marcel Van Herk, Chair in Radiotherapy Physics at the University of Manchester and The Christie NHS Foundation Trust.

 The Christie is joining many other famous institutes in the world that have chosen Mirada for their robust image fusion, adaptive radiotherapy and molecular imaging solutions. This is testimony to the company’s capabilities to support the next generation of pioneering radiotherapy and nuclear medicine departments.
