overview Dr. Hania Al-Hallaq is a Professor at the University of Chicago in the Department of Radiation & Cellular Oncology. She received her Ph.D. from the University of Chicago Medical Physics program in 1994 after studying the oxygenation status of tumors using BOLD MRI in Greg Karczmar’s laboratory. Hania was also the first resident in Therapeutic Physics at The University of Chicago graduating in 2002. After a couple of years as a clinical physicist at a large hospital system in the Chicago suburbs, she returned as faculty in Radiation Oncology at the University of Chicago in 2004. She is currently Associate Director of the Graduate Program in Medical Physics and served as Director of the Medical Physics Certificate Program. Her research focuses on the use of medical imaging to guide treatment positioning and assess treatment response following radiotherapy. She has developed expertise in both x-ray and 3D surface imaging modalities for breast cancer treatments and served as chair of TG-302: Surface image-guided radiotherapy. She has published on the use of CT radiomics to predict which patients might later develop RT-induced pneumonitis. She has served as Physics PI for national protocols studying the safety and efficacy of SBRT for metastatic disease (NRG-BR001, NRG-BR002, ALLIANCE-A091505). Currently, she is chair of AAPM Medical Physics Residency Training and Promotion Subcommittee and a vice-chair of AAPM Education and Training Committee (ETC).
