The Therapy Residency Program is based at the new academic cancer center at Allegheny General Hospital (AGH), where houses the state-of-the-art machines including an Elekta Unity MR-Linac, two Elekta VersaHDs, Exactrac Robotic system, a GammaKnife Icon, a GammaPod, and an Elekta HDR Flexitron. Adding an MR simulator and possibly a research MR scanner are planned in near future.
