I caught up with Richard Hausmann, PhD, CEO of Stockholm-based linear accelerator manufacturer Elekta. And what did we learn? MRI guidance and AI are improving radiation therapy targeting accuracy, reducing doses and making radiation therapy available in a broader range of cases, thus improving patient outcomes. We have a long way to go, though: Globally, 90% of technologies are only available to 20% of patients who need them.
