Research Summary

Dr. Deng's research has been focused on big data, medical imaging, organ dose, and cancer risk assessment in radiation oncology and biomedical engineering. In 2013 his group developed CT Gently, the world’s first iPhone App that can be used to estimate organ doses and associated cancer risks from CT and CBCT scans. Recently, Dr. Deng has been funded by a NIH R01 grant to develop a personal organ dose archive (PODA), a big data approach to developing an early warning system by actively tracking a large amount of organ dose data for individual patients in order to improve patient safety in radiation therapy.
