    • Enhancing Radiation Therapy Through Cherenkov Light-Activated Phototherapy. 

      Adamson, Justus D; Dewhirst, Mark Wesley; Fecci, Peter Edward; Meng, Boyu; Oldham, Mark; Shrock, Zachary; Tsvankin, Vadim; ... (9 authors) (International journal of radiation oncology, biology, physics, 2018-03)
      This work investigates a new approach to enhance radiotherapy through a photo therapeutic agent activated by Cherenkov light produced from the megavoltage photon beam. The process is termed Radiotherapy Enhanced with Cherenkov ...
    • Noninvasive measurement of tissue blood oxygenation with Cerenkov imaging during therapeutic radiation delivery 

      Das, S; Dewhirst, Mark Wesley; Lam, SK; Oldham, Mark; Palmer, Gregory M; Zhang, X (Optics Letters, 2017-08-15)
      © 2017 Optical Society of America. Tumor tissue oxygenation significantly affects the outcome of radiotherapy. Real-time monitoring of tumor hypoxia is highly desirable for effective radiotherapy, and is the basis for improved ...
    • Optical-CT 3D Dosimetry Using Fresnel Lenses with Minimal Refractive-Index Matching Fluid. 

      Adamovics, J; Bache, S; Malcolm, J; Oldham, Mark (PLoS One, 2016)
      Telecentric optical computed tomography (optical-CT) is a state-of-the-art method for visualizing and quantifying 3-dimensional dose distributions in radiochromic dosimeters. In this work a prototype telecentric system (DFOS-Duke ...
    • X-Ray Psoralen Activated Cancer Therapy (X-PACT). 

      Adamson, Justus D; Alcorta, DA; Beyer, WF; Dewhirst, Mark Wesley; Dodd, RD; Fathi, Z; Fecci, Peter Edward; ... (20 authors) (PLoS One, 2016)
      This work investigates X-PACT (X-ray Psoralen Activated Cancer Therapy): a new approach for the treatment of solid cancer. X-PACT utilizes psoralen, a potent anti-cancer therapeutic with current application to proliferative ...
