Ziad H. Saleh

I am an assistant attending medical physicist in the Clinical Physics service of the Department of Medical Physics. I provide clinical service in all aspects of radiation therapy to ensure high-quality patient care.

In conjunction with my clinical duties, my research is focused on developing new methods to better predict normal tissue toxicity and improve treatment outcome. I work with other co-investigators in Medical Physics and Radiation Oncology to develop robust tools for image segmentation to reduce inter- and intra-observer variability. I am also interested in assessing the uncertainty of deformable image registration on longitudinal images and its implication on adaptive planning.

Upon receiving my PhD in 2010 from Florida Institute of Technology, I joined Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis as a postdoctoral fellow. Shortly after, I joined Memorial Sloan Kettering and graduated from the residency program in 2014.

I am a member of the American Association of Physicists in Medicine and I serve as president-elect of the Radiological and Medical Physics Society of New York.
