Dr. Albert Chang specializes in radiation therapy for treatment of genitourinary malignancies, gastrointestinal malignancies, and gynecologic malignancies. He has expertise in modern radiation techniques such as stereotactic body radiotherapy, Cyberknife radiosurgery, brachytherapy, and intensity modulated radiation therapy.
Dr. Chang received his Ph.D. in molecular medicine and his M.D. from Boston University School of Medicine in 2007. He completed his residency in radiation oncology at the Washington University School of Medicine. His research interests are in the development of molecular imaging probes and targeted therapies. He has developed multiple imaging agents with the ability to characterize tumors at the cellular level. These imaging agents have the potential to be used for defining disease extent, predicting treatment response, and optimizing therapy. He is also involved in the design of clinical trials investigating the advanced imaging technologies, radiation therapy techniques, and targeted drug therapies that allow for the maximization of therapeutic effect while minimizing treatment side effects.
