Clinical Interest(s):
Diagnosis and management of lung cancer, mesothelioma and other thoracic neoplasms including metastasis. Use of ablative technologies to treat lung cancer and tumors. Use of quantitative imaging to characterize tumor and diffuse lung disease, in planning and targeting treatment.

Scientific Interest(s):

Dr. Fereidoun Abtin is developing an ablation map and scoring system for thoracic tumors in order to guide clinicians on the modality to be used for a specific tumor type, size and location, using predictors of complete ablation at the time of procedure or in short intervals following the procedure.
