PHILIPS Medical - MRI Tolerance Analysis

3DCS Tolerance Analysis: Magnet Design for Elekta MR-LINAC - Case Study

"3DCS saves lives."

A lofty statement, but perhaps, in the right hands, it really can contribute to saving lives. 

Avery Montembeault, Dimensional Engineer at Philips Medical, demonstrated how the use of 3DCS to design medical devices can help to save lives.

This was done through the use of 3DCS in the design (DFMA, Design for Manufacture and Assembly) of the magnet system of the Elekta MR-LINAC, a combination MRI - Magnetic Resonance Imaging device and a unique radiation projector that allows doctors to view the internal structures of patients, and then project radiation onto the specific cancer sites within the patient's body.

This reduces the collateral damage most often associated with radiation therapy, as well as allowing a larger administration of radiation to the cancer zone to destroy the greatest amount of cancer with the least amount of damage to the patient.
