Radiotherapy Treatment Planning

Dr James Bedford's team works on novel methods for targeting tumours with external beam radiation. The necessary imaging technology, calculation of dose distributions and optimisation of individualised treatment plans are developed. Techniques such as intensity-modulated radiation therapy, volumetric modulated arc therapy and image-guided radiotherapy are continually being improved.
