Cancer Imaging & Radiobiology
The goal of the Cancer Imaging and Radiobiology Research Program (CIR) is to foster a collaborative environment that promotes the incorporation of imaging, radiobiology, biophysics, and engineering approaches into the development and evaluation of new cancer diagnostic and treatment strategies.
Focus on Cancer Imaging & Radiobiology
Cancer Screening for Heavy Smokers
In 2011, a 10-year nationwide study found that low-dose CT screening for those at high risk for lung cancer can save lives. Now, a new study has shown that CT screening for lung cancer, when properly implemented, can also be cost-effective.
The Cancer Imaging and Radiobiology Research Program continues to thrive as a multidisciplinary group of cancer researchers that includes faculty from The Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth, the Thayer School of Engineering, and the clinical departments of Medicine (Radiation Oncology), Surgery, and Radiology within Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center (DHMC).
