The Rutherford Cancer Centres and Elekta are bringing the next generation of personalised adaptive radiotherapy technology to oncology centres across the UK, with the new MR-linac Elekta Unity available at the Rutherford Cancer Centre North West in Liverpool from mid-2020.

The Elekta Unity is a state-of-the art MR-linac that is setting a new standard for personalised radiotherapy. Elekta Unity provides the ability to reshape the treatment dose based on daily changes in shape, size and position of the tumour and surrounding healthy anatomy and then enables accurate dose delivery with real-time visualisation of the tumour.

Integrating MR (magnetic resonance) with precision RT (radiotherapy) makes it possible to see the target tumour and soft tissue during treatment. This intelligent and pioneering technology will enable real-time visual tracking meaning that treatment adaption is possible at the same time when treating cancer patients. Ensuring that every patient's treatment is adapted to their personalised real-time status.

Your Support Team

During your time at Rutherford, your personal supportive care team will be available to provide additional assistance or advice regarding your treatment type and delivery. If you have a concern at any time during or after your treatment, we are here to help and provide easy access to in-house supportive therapies.

A tailored care plan will be put together based on a non-compulsory holistic-needs assessment. The assessment is a short questionnaire where you can detail your personal needs whether they are physical, emotional, practical, spiritual or financial.
