Billy Loo - Associate Professor of Radiation Oncology (Radiation Therapy)

Bio-X Affiliated Faculty

Dr. Loo's main clinical specialties are radiation treatment of lung cancer and head and neck cancer, and he serves as the Thoracic Radiation Oncology Program Leader.

Dr. Loo's clinical research interests include 4-D multimodality imaging of tumor and organ motion using CT, PET, and MR; novel functional/metabolic imaging of tumor hypoxia and lymphatic drainage; and implementation and clinical trials of high-precision image-guided radiation therapy including 4-D IMRT, dynamic conformal arc radiotherapy (DCART) and volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT), and stereotactic ablative radiotherapy (SABR). His preclinical and translational research interests include novel functional imaging of inflammation as a mechanism of late normal tissue radiation injury, novel reconstruction and processing methods for 4-D imaging data to reduce artifacts and extract functional/physiologic information, and the radiobiology of tumor hypoxia and SABR.
