Antonio Damato, PhD


Massachusetts Institute of Technology

I am a board-certified medical physicist specializing in brachytherapy. My clinical activities include leading the brachytherapy physics team in our mission of designing and delivering brachytherapy treatments and ensuring the quality of our clinical operations. I contribute to the development of new methods and techniques to further the scope of brachytherapy and oversee the implementation of new technologies. I also participate in patient safety efforts outside of brachytherapy within the departments of Medical Physics and Radiation Oncology.

My research has focused on the use of technological innovation to enhance quality assurance efficacy and efficiency, and the use of process analysis to improve the safety of the brachytherapy practice. Other areas of clinical and research focus have been image-guided brachytherapy using MR and CT and development of novel brachytherapy applicators and techniques.
