MRI is attractive as radio therapy guidance and control method due to its soft tissue contrast and its absence of X-ray radiation. We report on a proof of concept of an integrated radio-oncology LINAC treatment machine within an MRI system resulting in a reasonably compact and cost efficient device. Experimental prof is given which demonstrates operating a conventional 6 MeV LINAC within a conventional superconducting high field MRI magnet.
