Willis-Knighton Cancer Center medical physics resident Jarron Syh presented three posters at the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) annual meeting in Charlotte, N.C., earlier this month.
Syh’s poster presentations included "Investigation of Commercial-Grade Flatbed Scanners and a Medical-Grade Scanner for GAFchromic EBT2 Film Dosimetry,” "An Optimized Dosimetry Study Comparing a Multichannel Cylinder versus Single Channel Cylinder in the Treatment of the Vaginal Cuff or Vagina with High Dose Rate Brachytherapy” and "Comparison of TomoScanner 2D Water Phantom Versus IBA Helix for Tomotherapy Profile Measurements.”
Fellow medical physics resident Mike White also presented a poster at the meeting. White presented "Verification of Leksell GammaPlan Treatment Plans for Extend Frame Fractionated Treatments Using Gamma Knife Perfexion.”
Syh presentations were done in conjunction with Willis-Knighton radiation oncologists Lane Rosen, M.D., Sanford Katz, M.D., and Michael Durci, M.D. as well as Chief of Physics and medical physics program head, Terry Wu, Ph.D. The Cancer Center’s medical physics residency program began in July 2011.
