I provide medical physics services at the radiation oncology department at the Butler site of UPMC CancerCenter. In addition to being the medical physicist there, I am the Radiation Safety Officer, thus providing quality assurance for all patients, the linear accelerator, and CT scanner. Our patients have a wide variety of cancers, giving an opportunity for exposure to various treatment approaches. In addition to my clinical duties, I make myself available to provide instruction to radiation therapy students who do rotations at our center.
