Dr. Nilesh Mistry received his Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering from Duke University, in Durham, North Carolina with a focus on medical imaging. Dr. Mistry is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Radiation Oncology at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. In 2010, he was an instructor for the University of Maryland School of Medicine. The same year, Dr. Mistry completed his post doctoral training from Radiation and Radiological Sciences at Vanderbilt University Institute of Imagining Sciences in Nashville, Tennessee.
Dr. Mistry’s research interests include imaging biomarkers, cardio-pulmonary physiology, imaging in cancer, MRI, CT, image processing, quantitative imagine, treatment assessment, and function based treatment planning.
