Research Abstract

My major areas of research interest are MR imaging of the pelvis and image-guided therapy. As co-PI of the NCIGT I along with Ferenc Jolesz lead this team and direct the AMIGO facility. My lab is dedicated to prostate cancer imaging as it relates to diagnosis, staging, treatment monitoring and Image-guided Therapy (IGT). We have program in MR guided prostate biopsies for diagnosis and treatment monitoring. I lead several prospective trials involving clinical prostate multi-parametric prostate MR at 3.0T with an endorectal coil. Our lab works in all aspects from acquisition and optimization of multi-parametric 3T imaging, image processing, registration, and segmentation, navigation and image display. We are also working on many engineering challenges associated with guidance and access to the prostate. We have a program in enabling technologies, including robotics for MR guided interventions and MR guided Focused Ultrasound surgery. The latter is a major interest of our program at NCIGT and specifically in prostate cancer. Our research also involves radiation oncology in the area of image-guided radiation delivery-namely EBRT and brachytherapy. We are involved in multi-disciplinary trials with colleagues in Oncology, Urology and Radiation Oncology and also multi-center groups such as CTSA and ACRIN.
