Our research is focused on the development of novel imaging and beam delivery techniques to improve the efficacy of radiation therapy. We are interested in medical image processing, image reconstruction, signal processing, image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT), and adaptive radiation therapy (ART). We are working on both software and hardware approaches to enhance the quality of different medical imaging modalities (including CT, CBCT, PET, and MRI) for their quantitative applications in image-guided and adaptive radiation therapy.
The topics we are currently working on include:
- Low-dose CT and cone-beam CT
- Motion management in radiation therapy
- Quantitative imaging for adaptive radiation therapy
