Dr Samant is a Professor in the Department of Radiation Oncology in Gainesville.
As part of the Therapeutic Medical Physics faculty, he serves as an instructor for two courses: BME 6591, Therapy Physics I and BME 6592, Therapy Physics II.
Dr Samant also serves on PhD committees and serves as a MS advisor.
His current research is focused on imaging applications for MR-LINAC, including using AI based models for organ motion and MR only radiation therapy delivery; detector development (x-rays, neutrons for imaging); and 4D imaging for LINAC gating to compensate for lung motion.
He is the co-PI on a NASA grant and is collaborating with Philips on MR imaging development for radiation therapy.
