A graduate of George Washington University, Leslie is board certified under the Medical Dosimetrist Certification Board and is a member of the American Association of Medical Dosimetrists.
The medical dosimetrist is a member of the radiation oncology team who performs calculation for the accurate delivery of the radiation oncologists prescribed dose and verifies the mathematical accuracy of all calculations.
“I derive computerized treatment plans that maintain a delicate balance between delivering the prescribed dose while ensuring the patient will not lose important healthy organ function,” explains Leslie.
To help with this job, she utilizes advanced computer technologies that place The Cancer Center at the forefront of many new processes.
"We plan with 3D computers with IMRT that enable us to give higher doses of radiation to a tumor while lowering doses to sensitive tissue structures,” says Leslie.
Using this technology to contribute to cancer survivorship is, says Leslie, "amazing."
