The Stay in the Game podcast is sponsored by MRIdian by ViewRay, unique in delivering MRI-guided stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) for localized prostate cancer. As reported in JAMA Oncology earlier this year, MRI-guided radiation therapy – delivered with MRIdian – was found in a phase III randomized controlled MIRAGE trial to be superior in reducing the toxic GI and GU side effects of treatment, as well as significantly increasing patient-reported quality-of-life metrics.
