MR Sim Appeal
The MR (Magnetic Resonance) Simulator Appeal is raising funds for a state-of-the-art machine which will transform the way care is delivered to 450 radiotherapy patients per day at the Leeds Cancer Centre, and continue to put the Centre at the forefront of cutting-edge technology.
Radiotherapy is one of the main treatment methods used to both cure and reduce symptoms from a cancer. For radiotherapy patients, successful cancer treatment depends on the quality and accuracy of the radiotherapy plan, with imaging being a critical element in determining the course of treatment.
An MR Simulator produces high quality scans of the area with cancer present; providing images which enables the doctor to identify and define the areas for treatment with greater clarity than is offered with the conventional CT imaging.
Through the incredible and inspiring generosity of our donors, the appeal has reached a £1.3 million milestone which is a fantastic achievement. We now need the support and generosity of our supporters to reach our £2.4million target. Your donation, no matter how large or small will make a significant impact on the lives of both staff and patients at the Leeds Cancer Centre, and we thank you immensely for your support.
