Bio sketch and research interests: Dr. Todor joined the Clinical Physics faculty of the Department of Radiation Oncology in 2001. Prior to that, he was a postdoctoral fellow at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City, where he was involved in radiological physics research in brachytherapy, the creation of a novel method for real-time intraoperative dosimetry of permanent prostate implants, and external beam portal image processing and enhancement. Dr. Todor received his Ph.D. from Old Dominion University in Norfolk, VA., where his work included collaboration with the Radiation Oncology and Biophysics Departments at Eastern Virginia Medical School. His clinical activities include LDR and HDR brachytherapy for prostate and breast cancer treatment. Currently funded by a grant from the American Cancer Society, Dr. Todor is actively involved in a number of research projects dealing with intraoperative assessment of LDR implants, the automatic tracking of markers in EPID images for lung treatments and real-time imaging techniques for HDR breast catheter implants. His long-term goals are the development of a brachytherapy-like system for the planning and delivery of gene therapy and the establishment of new techniques for the analysis of dose distributions in tissues.
