Thank you Quebec City!

Part of the EngerLab attended two different scientific conferences in Quebec City, IC3Ddose and COMP annual scientific meeting. Members of our group presented their research, interacted with national and international experts in the field and had a lot of fun!  Thank you Ville de Quebec for your hospitality. We had a great time!

Congratulates Dr. Marc Morcos!

Marc defended successfully his Ph.D. thesis “Intensity Modulated Brachytherapy for the Treatment Of Cervical Cancer”.
By placing rotating radiation attenuating shields inside the tandem of the cervical applicators, Marc’s innovation ensure to produce directional dose distributions.

Dynamic shield cervix IMBT system holds great promise for
increasing the therapeutic ratio and making brachytherapy accessible to more patients.

Please join us in congratulating Peter Kim on his recent publication in European Journal of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging Physics!

Peter’s latest publication is on standardization of SPECT/CT dosimetry following radioembolization with yttrium 90 microspheres by investigating the dose differences due to different self-calibrations and mass density assignments in the non-compartmental and local deposition methods. A practical mean correction method was introduced that permits dosimetry in images where the quality is compromised by patient motion …

EngerLab Welcomes Three new Ph.D. Students Azin Esmaelbeigi, Sébastien Quetin and Mélodie Cyr!

Azin Sebastien Melodie

Azin has a M.Sc. in Medical Biophysics from University of Toronto where she investigated physiological aspects of functional MRI. During her Ph.D. studies she will work on the dosimetry of Xoft Axxent electronic brachytherapy system and its application for treatment of rectal cancer. Sébastien is joining us from National Institute of Applied Sciences of Toulouse …
