My research aims to explore the potential of novel molecular imaging modalities, such as 1.5 T Diffusion-Weighted MRI, in assisting the planning of radiation therapy treatments. The purpose is to improve our ability to delineate the tumour volume and the neighbouring organ at risks. This will aid the generation of a treatment plan that will optimally deliver the prescribed radiation dose. Ultimately this will increase the probability of tumour control and reduce treatment side effects.
