Speaker

Eric Paulson, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Radiation Oncology, Radiology, and Biophysics at the Medical College of Wisconsin

Eric Paulson is an Associate Professor of Radiation Oncology, Radiology, and Biophysics at the Medical College of Wisconsin. The focus of Dr. Paulson’s work has been MRI guided radiation therapy, including development of novel pulse sequences and reconstruction algorithms, workflows and immobilization devices, and clinical implementation. He has served on AAPM task groups focusing on MR simulation, MRI biomarkers, MR-guided brachytherapy, and 4D-MRI. More recently, Dr. Paulson was involved in the development and operationalization of the Elekta Unity MR-Linac at MCW, and is PI for an NIH-funded study (R01HL62213) focusing on strategies to accelerate online adaptive MR-guided radiotherapy. Dr. Paulson is also PI on several investigator initiated clinical trials investigating development and application of advanced MRI methods for radiotherapy and use of augmented reality in radiotherapy.

MR-guided Radiotherapy: The MCW Experience

MR-guided radiation therapy presents unique opportunities for dose escalation and biological adaptation. The purposes of this talk are to describe the MR-guided radiation therapy experience at MCW, including novel workflows and tools developed, and present a number of interesting cases that highlight the benefit of MR guidance with the Elekta Unity MR-Linac.
