Cihat Ozhasoglu, PhD

  • Clinical Assistant Professor, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine
  • Medical Physicist

My specialty is CyberKnife radiosurgery. I am interested in head and neck, intracranial, lung, and spinal radiosurgery. I am also interested in helping to start our new modality SRS program with our new CyberKnife M6 with new MLC. I also teach CyberKnife radiosurgery to residents and postdoctoral fellows

Teaching Activities:

CyberKnife Rradiosurgery lectures. Participate in training of physics and radiation oncology residents.
