Dr Caroline Chung
Associate Professor, Radiation Oncology and Diagnostic Radiology
Director of Imaging Technology and Innovation, Division of Radiation Oncology
Dr. Chung is an Associate Professor and Director of Imaging Technology & Innovation within the Division of Radiation Oncology at MD Anderson Cancer Center with cross-appointment to Diagnostic Radiology at MD Anderson.In her leadership role, Dr. Chung facilitates collaborative, multidisicplinary research studies of MR-guided radiotherapy including the use of MR for target delineation, real-time MR image guidance of radiation delivery and multimodal/multiparametric imaging biomarkers of response to treatment. She was previously a Radiation Oncologist and clinician-scientist at Princess Margaret Canada Centre (PM), Toronto, Canada where she was the clinical and research lead for the Multidisciplinary Brain Metastasis Clinic at PM and lead of the Robert and Andree Fitzhenry Brain Metastasis Program. Dr. Chung’s major research focus is to utilize advanced imaging to measure and predict response and toxicity to treatment in order to optimize personalized, adaptive treatment approaches. This has included preclinical investigation in orthotopic brain tumor models, retrospective multiparametric image analyses and ongoing clinical trial investigation of imaging biomarkers of tumor and normal tissue response following radiation treatment.Internationally, Dr. Chung is involved in efforts to improve the quality and standardization of imaging to facilitate meaningful measurement and interpretation of imaging biomarkers in clinical trials as co-chair of the Dynamic Contrast Enhanced-MRI Task Force for the Radiological Society of North America Quantitative Imaging Biomarker Alliance, as a member of the Jumpstarting Brain Tumor Drug Development Coalition's Imaging Standardization Steering Committee, Co-Chair of the Neuro-imaging Subcommittee in the Neuro-Oncology Committee of the Alliance for Clinical Trials in Oncology.
