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
"Inoperable" Lung Cancer Radiation
NCCC offers innovative care to patients with early stage lung cancer when there are no surgical options. Stereotactic body radiation therapy, (SBRT) a sophisticated approach to radiation delivery, helps people with inoperable lung cancer live longer lives
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).
