Trung is a PhD student developing computational tools to quantify radiation dose from radiological imaging and interventional procedures.

His current research generates organ-dose coefficients for patients undergoing frequently implemented radiographic examinations by employing the UF library of anthropomorphic computational phantoms to mimic clinical posture in Monte Carlo simulation. The cohort of investigation comprises pediatric patients and premature infants from several clinical sites across the United States and Canada under a collective radiation epidemiology grant from the National Institutes of Health.

Trung’s research prospects also include dose reconstruction of fluoroscopy-guided interventions for both patients and clinicians, and he is a key contributor to a budding project to develop a library of mesh-type anthropomorphic computational phantoms.
