Research interests

Professor George Mikhaeel's research interests are focused on advanced radiotherapy techniques and the use of imaging in lymphoma. He published the first UK study which pioneered the use of early response assessment by PET scanning so that treatment can be tailored to the individual patient. He's developed and implemented new radiotherapy techniques combining an innovative arc technique and deep inspiration breath-hold together with image-guided delivery of treatment. Combining these techniques improve targeting of radiation and reduce radiation dose to normal tissues making radiotherapy to the mediastinum much safer and highly accurate. He is also accredited in the use of Proton Beam Therapy from The University of Pennsylvania.
