Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy - Texas Style
John E. Bayouth
Department of Radiation Oncology
University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston
1305 Newell-Simon Hall
Refreshments 3:15 pm
Talk 3:30 pm
I will present a discussion of how UTMB began with IMRT (forward planning),
the potential benefits of the inverse solution, how one arrives at the
inverse solution (specification of dosimetric objectives, determination of
the ideal fluence distribution for each beam, segmentation of ideal fluence
map into MLC field shapes), and current areas of research.
John E. Bayouth received a M.S. degree in Nuclear Engineering from
Kansas State University in 1991, and a Ph.D. in Biomedical Science
with emphasis in Medical Physics from the University of Texas MD
Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, TX. He lived in Pittsburgh for 5
years, holding an Assistant Professorship with the Department of
Radiation Oncology at UPMC from 1994-1996, followed by a position as
Chief of Medical Physics at Shadyside Hospital (now UPMC Shadyside).
He is currently an Assistant Professor at the University of Texas
Medical Branch in Galveston.
