MR-Linac Installation Time-Lapse Video (Froedtert & MCW Clinical Cancer Center)
Froedtert & MCW Cancer Network installed Elekta’s high-field MR-guided linear accelerator (MR-linac) system at the Clinical Cancer Center at Froedtert Hospital. It required careful coordination of a highly specialized team and industrial construction equipment to move and position cumbersome, delicate components. On Saturday, Sept. 17, 2016, two components, a magnet, weighing about 5.75 tons, and a gantry, weighing about 10 tons, were lowered through an opening in the roof of the Clinical Cancer Center. The installation was coordinated by Froedtert Hospital, Elekta and Mortenson Construction.
