Mason Anders, Ph.D.

Medical Physicist

Mason

Biography

Dr. Anders joined West Physics in July 2017 as a Medical Physicist. Prior to joining the firm, Dr. Anders worked at the University of Texas Southwestern as a postdoctoral researcher in the Medical Physics and Engineering Division of the Radiation Oncology Department. While there, Dr. Anders researched the quality of treatment and patient comfort in an open-mask study of head and neck cancer patients, using VisionRT real-time tracking and cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) to study patient setup error, as well as inter-fractional and intra-fractional motion. He also researched deformable image registration methodologies. As part of his duties at UT Southwestern, Dr. Anders verified patient treatment plans using film and ion chamber detectors in concert with MobiusFX, as a member of the intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) quality assurance team.

Dr. Anders received his Ph.D. in Nuclear Physics from Texas A&M University in 2015 under the supervision of Dr. Shalom Shlomo of the Cyclotron Institute. His graduate research included a project to develop a new energy density functional for increased predictive ability of properties of nuclei in ground and excited states, with emphasis on rare nuclei with unusual neutron-to-proton ratios. Dr. Anders received his B.A. degree from Austin College in Physics and Mathematics in 2009.

Dr. Anders is originally from Dallas, Texas.
