Leading advances in new radiotherapy techniques to treat cancer; optimizing imaging technologies to predict tumor recurrence and visualize response to therapy

Research Overview

  • Dr. Garcia-Young is a board-certified radiation oncologist who specializes in the use of ionizing radiation to treat patients with solid tumors and lymphomas.
  • He investigates optimal use of radiation therapy (radiotherapy) techniques including intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), high-dose brachytherapy, and image-guided radiation therapy.
  • Dr. Garcia-Young is a Principal Investigator for Radiation Therapy Oncology Group (RTOG) National Cancer Institute-sponsored oncology group clinical trials.
  • He has authored several publications and abstracts on radiotherapy and imaging techniques to assess cancer progression, predict tumor recurrence after surgery and radiotherapy, and visualize response to treatment.
