Neelam Tyagi, PhD

I am an assistant attending physicist in the Department of Medical Physics.

After earning a PhD in Nuclear Engineering and Radiological Sciences at the University of Michigan in 2006, I was a postdoctoral fellow in the Departments of Radiation Oncology at the University of Michigan and the University of California, San Diego. Before joining Memorial Sloan Kettering, I was a medical physicist at William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, Michigan, and was actively involved in the clinical development and implementation of new technologies for adaptive radiotherapy planning.

My current clinical and research efforts are focused on integrating MRI into treatment planning for different body sites, with the goal of using information from MRI alone to guide adaptive radiotherapy decisions for treatment planning.

I am certified by the American Board of Radiology.
