Ashraf is 3rd place winner of AAPM Young Investigator’s Symposium

At the AAPM Spring Clinical Meeting, Thayer School of Engineering PhD Student Muhammad (Ramish) Ashraf took the third place prize in the Young Investigator’s Symposium.

Ramish’s talk was titled “Remote, Real-Time and High-Resolution Optical Imaging of Small Beamlets in Radiotherapy” and it evaluated the use of Radioluminescence as a Quality Assurance (QA) tool for small beamlets in radiotherapy. Optical Imaging can be used to image a variety of dynamic Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy (VMAT) and Stereotactic RadioSurgery (SRS) plans. The technique is sensitive to MLC and Gantry Angle errors. High spatial resolution renders the technique a viable solution for small field dosimetry.
