Oncologic Radiation Therapy Imaging Research

Mission

Focus

Novel 4-D-MRI images with high isotropic resolution, free from stitch artifacts and excellent blood vessel contrast that can be used to accurately define both pancreatic tumor and boost volume margins for SBRT with simultaneously integrated boost.

Implementing novel multi-parametric MRI for liver cancer patients showing excellent correlation of imaging-defined tumor and corresponding specimen cut. Functional MRIs resolved more heterogeneity within the tumor.

State-of-the-art small-animal IGRT platform allows small animals to be treated with a similar level of precision as those implemented on patients.

Identifying novel imaging and tumor biomarkers through the integration of PET/MR/CT imaging and genomic information, with the goal of eventually allowing treatment tailored to the specific disease subtypes, thereby making patient treatments more specific and effective for individual patients.
