Research Focus
An active researcher, Dr. Kalnicki is currently investigating innovative methods of radiation planning and delivery, including Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT), PET-CT fusion for radiation planning, 4-D treatment planning, target motion manage
Dr. Kalnicki focuses on researching and implementing new technologies in the radiation treatment of cancer, with the aim of enhancing the dose to the tumor target while preserving normal tissues from radiation injury, potentially increasing tumor control and improving quality of life. He pioneered the use of intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), image guided radiation therapy (IGRT), target motion management with 4-D radiation planning, stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) and functional tumor imaging with PET-CT (positron emission tomography – CAT scan) fusion techniques. His 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. Dr. Kalnicki earned his medical degree at the University of Sao Paulo Medical School in Sao Paulo, Brazil. He completed his residency and fellowship in radiotherapy at Montefiore and Albert Einstein College of Medicine. He came to Montefiore and Einstein from the University of Pittsburgh, School of Medicine, where he was Vice Chairman for Clinical Affairs and Director of Radiation Oncology at the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute. Prior to joining the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute, Dr. Kalnicki served as Chairman of the Department of Radiation Oncology at Allegheny University of Health Sciences in Pittsburgh. He is a member of many prominent professional societies. He has authored numerous articles and abstracts during his career and is a recipient of several awards, including the Fellowship Award from the American College of Radiation Oncology.
