Clinical Interests

Genito-urinary, breast malignancies and lymphomas.
Research Interests 
I am involved in the management of breast, genitourinary and primary unknown malignancies. I have a research interest indose-escalated radiation therapy for prostate cancer using 3D conformal, intensity-modulated or helical tomotherapy techniques in combination with improved imaging modalities such as PET Imaging in order to improve the therapeutic ratio and long term disease free survival. I am also interested in the use of partial breast irradiation in the adjuvant management of breast cancer as a method of improving therapeutic ratio.
