Radiation Physics research programs

  • BAIT
    The Bioanatomic Imaging and Treatment (BAIT) program is a clinical research program at North Carolina Baptist Hospitals and Wake Forest School of Medicine. The program was initiated in the late 1990s with a grant from the NCBH Developmental Technologies grant program, with additional industrial funding from Varian Medical Systems and GE Healthcare. Facilities aspects of the program include dedicated PET-CT and 3.0T MR Simulators in the Department of Radiation Oncology at the WFBMC Outpatient Comprehensive Cancer Center
  • Spatial/contrast resolution in bioanatomic image-based IMRT.
  • PET-based target delineation for lung cancers.
  • Poisson-based shape metrics for tumor characterization.
  • Dose function histograms for assessing treatment planning.
  • PET/CT reconstruction techniques.
