Abstract
My research interests concern the application of new technologies in the improvement of accuracy and precision of radiation treatment planning and delivery to cancer patients. these include external beam radiotherapy as well as brachytherapy. I am also interested in procedures involving administration of radioactive miscrospheres employing the radioactive isotope Yttrium-90 in the management of liver cancer.
