Image-guided radiation therapy research
Welcome to CORAL, the Computational Radiotherapy Lab in the Department of Radiation Oncology at Washington University School of Medicine. Our lab specializes in imaging and image guidance as it applies to radiation therapy. Specific areas of interest include: lung cancer, adaptive radiotherapy, imaging for treatment assessment, deformable image registration, 4D and motion management, and developing multimodality imaging approaches for lung cancer into these areas.
Investigators, students, and alumni.

Welcome new summer education program students
We’re very excited to have two summer education program students join the lab for the summer. Jasmine Luo is an undergraduate BME major at Wash U, and David Anand is an undergraduate physics major at Virginia Tech. Welcome Jasmine and David! Interested in applying for 2020? See the summer undergraduate program page.
CORAL researchers top 3 in AAPM SPARE Challenge
Researchers from CORAL, Dr. Matt Riblett and Dr. Geoff Hugo, participated in the Sparse-view Reconstruction Challenge for Four-dimensional Cone-beam CT (SPARE) organized by researchers at the University of Sydney, Australia. Results were presented at the recent American Association of Physicists in Medicine annual meeting, and the CORAL work, part of Matt’s Ph.D. dissertation, placed in the […]
Congratulations to Matt Riblett, who successfully defended his dissertation entitled, “MOTION-INDUCED ARTIFACT MITIGATION AND IMAGE ENHANCEMENT STRATEGIES FOR FOUR-DIMENSIONAL FAN-BEAM AND CONE-BEAM COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY“. Matt has remained at VCU to start a medical physics residency this summer.
Congratulations to Nicky Mahon, who successfully defended her dissertation, “Radiomics for Predicting Tumor Response and Contour Delineation Uncertainty” today at VCU. Once she graduates, Nicky will be staying on at VCU in a postdoctoral scholar role, working with Dr. Elisabeth Weiss.
We’ve recently published a new paper “CALIPER: A deformable image registration algorithm for large geometric changes during radiotherapy for locally advanced non‐small cell lung cancer” in Medical Physics, on a new deformable image registration algorithm developed in our lab, tailored for registering lung CT images with large anatomical changes. The first author is Chris Guy, who […]
