We found that: the ferromagnetic 60Co source does not significantly perturb the homogeneity of the MRI magnetic field; the -ray IMRT unit is capable of producing high quality IMRT treatment plans; the MRI magnetic field eliminates contamination electrons and does not significantly perturb the dose distribution in lung, soft tissue, and bone; and accurate heterogeneity dose computations are possible employing only MRI data.
