Welcome to Radiation Oncology
The mission of this department is three-fold: to deliver world-class care on a daily basis to our patients using the most advanced technologies available; to conduct groundbreaking basic, translational and clinical research; and to provide quality education to the next generation of medical practitioners and scientists.
Ultrasound imaging provides marker-free, soft-tissue visualization, without exposing the patient to any extra radiation dose. As such, several research groups are investigating the use of ultrasound guidance for localizing soft-tissue structures and tumors during radiotherapy. Research in UT Southwestern's Division of Medical Physics and Engineering is highlighted online today in an article on medicalphysicsweb.
With 16 abstracts, seven presentations, and one press briefing, the faculty of UT Southwestern Radiation Oncology will be well-represented at the 50th annual conference of the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO).
