CKCS Tech Night - Monday - August 12 at 7 pm
Current and Emerging Technologies in the Radiotherapeutic Treatment of Cancer
Presented by Dr. Jonathan Feddock, Radiation Oncology, BaptistHeath
Dr. Jonathan Feddock will be joining us at the August Tech Night to talk
about state of the art technologies in the medical field. Dr. Feddock explained,
"I will cover the key types of radiation technology that we are currently using
as well as some of the up and coming equipment, like the treatment unit we are
in the process of installing. I will include cyberknife, but will also discuss
protons, arc therapy, and the newer real time tumor tracking and big data systems".
Board-certified radiation oncologist Jonathan Feddock, MD, earned a medical degree
with distinction from the University of Kentucky, where he also
completed a radiation oncology residency. In his former role, Dr. Feddock served
as an associate professor in the University of Kentucky Department of
Radiation Medicine and as medical director for the Markey
Cancer Center Clinical Research Organization.
His special interests include gynecologic, lung, gastrointestinal, pediatric and
breast cancers, repeat radiation, and new radiation techniques.
Join us on August 12 and feel free to invite friends and families to hear about these
medical technological advances.
