    Dante Capaldi, PhD, DABR, is an Assistant Professor and Associate Director of the Medical Physics Residency Program at the UCSF Department of Radiation Oncology. He completed his PhD in Medical Biophysics at Western University, Canada, where he developed and evaluated imaging biomarkers of pulmonary structure and function using MRI and CT without the use of exogenous contrast agents or specialized equipment for characterization of asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and non-small cell lung cancer. Subsequently, he completed his Medical Physics Residency and NSERC Postdoctoral Fellowship at Stanford University, where his clinical research focused on SRS treatments of cranial lesions and advanced imaging methods in assessing treatment response.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication.
