Research Abstract

Most of my work is in the field of image-guided adaptive radiotherapy. The main focus of my research is developing techniques for overcoming respiratory motion in the irradiation of abdominal and thoracic cancer patients. Respiratory motion significantly limits our ability to deliver a lethal dose to unattached tumors in the abdomen and thorax. We are currently investigating fluoroscopic tumor tracking with or without implanted fiducials and treatment beam gating either based on the internal signal or an external surrogate. We are also studying the use of the treatment beam, itself, for tumor position verification and adaptive treatment. Addition projects include in molecular biophysics and imaging for radiotherapy applications.
