Longitudinal CBCT radiomics in Lung Cancer supported by Varian Medical Systems Inc.

Varian will support my research project entitled “Longitudinal CBCT radiomics analysis for lung cancer radiotherapy response and prognosis prediction” with $230,000 over 2 years. This is the first research grant from Varian to the Department of Radiation Oncology, Sidney Kimmel Medical College at Thomas Jefferson University. This project can potentially impact the clinical practice of lung cancer patients by using standard imaging modalities (CBCT and 4D-CBCT) to provide early prediction of prognosis and toxicity.

We will develop Jefferson Whole Lung CBCT radiomics framework that provides comprehensive lung analysis for early prediction of local control and normal tissue toxicity during lung radiation therapy. This project will provide predictive models for treatment response and prognosis using structural, morphologic, and functional radiomic features acquired during treatment with Varian CBCT imaging, as well as a unique opportunity to combine Varian technology (4D CBCT) with novel image processing techniques to acquire functional images. This project will also include a clinical study of the novel 4D functional CBCT imaging technique.

I am looking for a highly motivated postdoc to lead this project. If you are interested in working with us, please email me at “Wookjin.Choi@jefferson.edu.”
