PGY 2 – Taylor Patton, PhD
- Medical Physics,
University of Wisconsin – Madison, Madison, WI, 2018
Taylor Patton received his Ph.D. in Medical Physics from the University of Wisconsin – Madison where he focused on 4DCT-based lung ventilation research under the supervision of Dr. John Bayouth. Taylor helped facilitate a phase II clinical
trial investigating the impact of functional avoidance for lung cancer patients. He analyzed the changes in ventilation due to radiation therapy, finding that high-function lung tissue is more sensitive to radiation than low-function lung tissue. Taylor extended this work by building a model to predict the changes in ventilation a patient is expected to experience after a course of radiation therapy. Additionally, he investigated different motion management techniques and their effect on the efficacy of functional avoidance in lung cancer treatments. Taylor started his Medical Physics residency at the University of Colorado – Denver in July 2018.PGY 1 - Andrew Santoso, PhD
- Medical Physics,
University of Wisconsin – Madison, Madison, WI, 2019
Andrew Santoso received his Ph.D. in Medical Physics from the University of Wisconsin – Madison. His research focused on using Quantitative Ultrasound, an approach to objectively characterize tissue, to quantify changes in the microstructure of the cervix during pregnancy. This was accomplished under the guidance of Dr. Timothy Hall and Dr. Helen Feltovich. During his time in Wisconsin, some of his work included creating an ultrasound calibration system for absolute measurements, development of protocols for animal research, and consenting patients to participate in studies. The ultimate goal of this work was to develop foundations for addressing public health issues such as preterm birth. Andrew started his Medical Physics residency at the University of Colorado – Denver in July 2019.
