Therapy Treatments:

The department of Radiation Medicine offers various progressive treatment options, where each course of therapy is thoughtfully chosen and optimized to best suit the individual's needs.

Therapies currently offered include:

   • 3-D conventional
   • Conformal irradiation
   • Intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT)
   • Image guided radiation therapy (IGRT)
   • Respiratory gated radiation therapy
   • High dose rate brachytherapy (HDR) for MammoSite and other multiple catheter treatments
   • Low dose rate Cs-137 and I-125 brachytherapy
   • Total body irradiation (TBI)
   • Total skin electron irradiation
   • Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) using both frames and masks
   • Stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT)

These treatments' accuracy is enhanced with the use of imaging devices to pin-point and/or locate the site of interest. Such technologies include a conventional simulator with fluoroscopy, CT and MRI scanners, cone-beam CT scanners, and a combined PET/CT scanner. The chosen therapy in conjunction with imaging produces an optimized treatment.

Research Interests:

My research interests include small field dosimetry, Monte Carlo simulations, patient specific QA measurements and linear accelerator commissioning & RTP beam modeling.
