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
Room to Operate
MRI and CT scanners slide in and out of operating rooms on overhead rails giving surgeons real-time 3-D images of complex organs like brains and spines. Students observe from a balcony overhead. This changes everything.
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).
