What is a clinical trial?
A clinical trial is a study conducted with patients, usually to evaluate a new treatment or medication. Each study is designed to answer specific scientific questions and to find new and better ways to help take care patients. The search for excellent treatment begins with basic research and careful study in the laboratory.
True image-guided radiation therapy
The ViewRay™ system uses a unique combination of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and radiation therapy technology to provide high-contrast pretreatment images and continuous soft-tissue imaging during treatment.
