Sean is a PhD student working on the development of an extensive library of pregnant female hybrid computational phantoms. These phantoms will be utilized for computational dosimetry and will better quantify fetal dose as a function of maternal size and fetal depth. This work will yield the first pregnant female library of phantoms of its kind, allowing better selection of a phantom based on patient size for computational dosimetry in a multitude of exposure scenarios where the fetus is potentially exposed.

Applications of this work are currently being utilized in dose reconstruction efforts of pregnant female atomic bomb survivors as well as pregnant women receiving computed tomography (CT) exams.
