Berry Wins 1st Place in RAMPS Young Investigator Symposium
Sean Berry, a Ph.D. student under the supervision of Prof. Cheng-Shie Wuu, won first place in the annual Young Investigator Symposium sponsored by the Radiological and Medical Physics Society of New York (RAMPS). Sean was the only doctoral student in the competition; all others were post-doctoral research scientists from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) and from Columbia.
The title of Sean’s paper and talk was “EPID Based Transit Dosimetry for In-Vivo Patient Treatment Verification.” Electronic portal imaging device (EPID) in-vivo treatment verification was approved for clinical trial by the IRB at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center a few weeks ago. Currently four patients there are under in-vivo treatment verification.
Sean, a part-time doctoral student in APAM’s medical physics program, is currently employed as a medical physicist at MSKCC.
