His research has been on the development and evaluation of algorithms for calculating lung ventilation using 4D CT, thus taking into account the challenges afforded by respiratory motion in precise targeting of radiation. The goal is to develop robust and practical methods to segregate functional from non-functional lung areas in the patients with thoracic malignancies, and to deliver radiation therapy that preferentially spares functional lung. Recently, his focus has been on the investigation and development of quantitative imaging biomarkers (radiomics) from CT and PET/CT to predict treatment outcomes for patients treated with radiation.
