We are interested in big data, medical imaging, organ dose, and cancer risk assessment in radiation oncology and biomedical engineering. In 2013 our 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.
Dr. Jun Deng is an Associate Professor at the Department of Therapeutic Radiology of Yale University School of Medicine and an ABR board certified medical physicist at Yale-New Haven Hospital. Dr. Deng obtained his Ph.D. from University of Virginia in 1998 and finished his postdoctoral fellowship at Department of Radiation Oncology of Stanford University in 2001. Dr. Deng has been serving on the Editorial Board of 14 peer-reviewed journals, been on the study section of DOD, ASTRO and RSNA for grant review since 2005, and serving as scientific reviewer for European Science Foundation and Dutch Cancer Society since 2015. Dr. Deng has received numerous honors and awards such as Fellow of Institute of Physics in 2004, AAPM Medical Physics Travel Grant in 2008, ASTRO IGRT Symposium Travel Grant in 2009, AAPM-IPEM Medical Physics Travel Grant in 2011, and Fellow of AAPM in 2013.
