Professional Interests

Dr. Kalnicki, a radiation oncologist, focuses on new technologies in the radiation treatment of cancer. He was a pioneer in the use of intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), image guided radiation therapy (IGRT), target motion management with 4-D radiation planning, and functional tumor imaging with PET-CT (positron emission tomography – CAT scan) fusion techniques. Another area of interest is the use of stereotactic guidance in radiation treatment, specifically for stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS). All enhance precision of tumor targeting with radiation therapy, increasing dose to the tumor, while sparing surrounding normal tissues.
 
Dr. Kalnicki's research has implications for radiation treatment planning and techniques used for most clinical situations in radiation oncology, including brain, head and neck, thoracic, upper abdominal and pelvic malignancies. His clinical interests focus on head and neck, prostate, and breast cancers.
