Research

2012 Assessment of Renal Tolerance after Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy in a Large Animal Model – The effects of Treatment Volume, Location  and Dose/Fractionation Over Time

During my time at McGill University Health Centre, I designed and wrote this pre-clinical protocol which was approved by the animal ethics committee. The animals were irradiated at the end of 2012 and were  monitored for long-term toxicity at different time points. This monitoring period ended in December 2013 and I am now in the process of gathering the data.
