Biography

Patient imaging plays a crucial role in Radiation therapy. Using an Electronic Portal Imaging Device to capture images during treatments permits clinicians not only to track tumor motion, but also could be utilized to modify subsequent treatments (adaptive radiation therapy). My research interest involves utilizing these imaging techniques to achieve maximum therapeutic effect.
