Radiation Physics

Research has been one of important activities in the physics division. Physics researchers are developing new techniques and investigating new methodologies to continuously improve treatment planning and evaluation methods, target localization and verification accuracy, and treatment delivery precision. Physics research involves intensity-modulated radiation therapy, image-guided radiation therapy, oncological imaging, treatment planning optimization, physical and biological modeling using equivalent uniform dose (EUD) model, TCP/NTCP models to evaluate treatment planning and post-treatment evaluation, intra and inter-fraction organ motion analysis and modeling, 3-D dosimetry, biological and functional imaging, sterotactic radiosurgery and body radiosurgery, in-room imaging for patient positioning and target localization, imaging and modeling of drug distribution, etc. There are several research laboratories in the physics division.
