Hsiang-Chi Kuo, PhD

Chief Physicist in the Radiation Oncology Department at Norwalk Hospital

Medical physicist Hsiang-Chi Kuo

I am a medical physicist in the Clinical Physics Service at Memorial Sloan Kettering and Chief Physicist in the Radiation Oncology Department at Norwalk Hospital. I work closely with radiation oncologists to provide technical support and to consult on planning and delivering radiation treatment at Norwalk Hospital.

I have a special interest in using advanced radiation techniques to ensure that our patients receive the safest, most-precise treatments. These include intensity-modulated radiation therapy, image-guided radiation therapy, low- and high-dose radiation, and stereotactic body radiation therapy. I am also interested in comparing the effectiveness of various techniques for planning treatment. I study treatment outcomes using data mining and data modeling. This information helps us improve radiation therapy for our patients.

I received my doctorate from the National Tsing Hua University in Taiwan in 2010, and I joined MSK in 2017. I am board certified in therapeutic medical physics.
