Dr Hazel McCallum is PI for Deep MR-only Radiotherapy project

This project aims to improve outcomes for patients receiving radiotherapy by reducing side effects and increasing the accuracy of their radiotherapy planning through the use of multi-parametric MRI. mpMRI is used to generate an auto-segmented delineation set and an image set for accurate dose calculation.

The project includes PET-MR based radiotherapy planning to further improve tumour delineation and to evaluate tumour response both during and after treatment.
