In a new paper published in Lancet Digital Health, recent CTSC KL2 Scholar grad and radiation oncologist at the Cleveland Clinic, Dr. Mohamed Abazeed and colleagues show that an artificial intelligence (AI) framework can provide personalized radiation dosage based on data from CT scans and electronic health records.

“While highly effective in many clinical settings, radiotherapy can greatly benefit from dose delivery optimization. This framework will help physicians develop data-driven, personalized dosage schedules that can maximize the likelihood of treatment success and mitigate radiation side effects for patients,” said Dr. Abazeed.
