Career Summary

Biography

Claire is a practising Radiation Oncology Medical Physicist. She is currently an Assistant Professor at the University of Washington (USA). She is also a Senior Medical Physics Specialist at the Calvary Mater Newcastle Hospital, NSW, Australia. She graduated with a BSc (Hons) in 1998 (UNSW, Aust), and a PhD in 2014 (UON, Aust).

Claire has spent a large portion of her career working on improving and expanding the role of brachytherapy (a form of radiation therapy in which a radioactive source is inserted directly into the tumour) in Australia and overseas. She has led quality improvement in treatment practices at the Calvary Mater Newcastle so that this centre is now recognized as a leader in this type of treatment both in Australia and world-wide.

In addition to her clinical roles Claire is a Conjoint Lecturer at the University of Newcastle (UON) Australia. Claire has been teaching both undergraduate and post-graduate students in all aspects of Medical Physics since 2002, as well as developing and coordinating academic courses. She supervises research higher degree students at both UON and University of Sydney. She also works within her medical physics profession in a number of other roles.

Research Expertise

Claire has been conducting research in radiation therapy in Newcastle since 1999, with efforts focused primarily on improving treatment outcomes for patients with gynaecological cancer who are treated using brachytherapy. Brachytherapy was one of the first types of radiation therapy delivered to patients over 100 years ago and has been a highly successful treatment method for certain cancers ever since. Improvements in imaging technology and increasing accuracy in treatment calculations and verification have seen both the rate of recurrence of these cancers and treatment-related complications, dramatically reduce.

Claire is a recognized world-leader in the implementation of new techniques in brachytherapy, working with centres both in Australia and internationally to study both the efficiency of new procedures and the clinical impact of such changes. She is also a highly respected research supervisor and mentor in medical physics, understanding the importance of maintaining quality education for those who are the leaders of the future

Teaching Expertise

Claire teaches medical physics courses at both and undergraduate and post-graduate level, including supervision of Masters and PhD students and training of registrars and residents. In addition she actively contributes to both national TEAP (Training, Education and Assessment Program) and international CAMPEP (Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Education Programs) committees. She currently teaches and supervises medical physics and radiation oncology residents in Washington, USA as well as Newcastle

Professional Engagement

Claire has been an invited member of many national and international committees, including her role as the Australasian College of Physical Scientists and Engineers in Medicine (ACPSEM) TEAP coordinator, with responsibility for over 100 medical physics registrars across Australia and New Zealand as well as performing as Chair of both University and Clinical Department Accreditation panels for TEAP. Claire is also working on improvements to the CAMPEP accredited resident training program at the University of Washington, including involvement in creation of a ‘virtual’ brachytherapy suite in which to train both medical physics and radiation oncology residents. 

Claire is Deputy Editor-in-Chief of the Australasian Physical and Engineering Sciences in Medicine (APESM) journal, personally reviewing over 100 manuscripts for this journal per annum as well as an invited reviewer for other scientific publications.

Collaborations

Current collaborations include: - the University of Washington (USA); Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (USA); Varian Medical Systems (International); the University of Sydney (NSW, Aust); the Alfred Health Radiation Oncology department (Victoria, Aust), and the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Centre (Victoria, Aust)

Purpose: The superior image quality of 3 tesla (3T) magnetic resonance (MR) imaging in cervical cancer offers the potential to use a single image set for brachytherapy. This study aimed to determine a suitable single sequence for contouring tumour and organs at risk, applicator reconstruction, and treatment planning. Material and methods: A 3T (Skyra, Siemens Healthcare AG, Germany) MR imaging system with an 18 channel body matrix coil generated HDR cervical cancer brachytherapy planning images on 20 cases using plastic-based treatment applicators. Seven different T2-weighted Turbo Spin Echo (TSE) sequences including both 3D and contiguous 2D scans based on sagittal, axial (transverse), and oblique planes were analysed. Each image set was assessed for total scanning time and usefulness in tumour localization via inter- and intra-observer analysis of high-risk clinical target volume (HR CTV) contouring. Applicator reconstruction in the treatment planning system was also considered. Results: The intra-observer difference in HR CTV volumes between 2D and 3D axial-based image sets was low with an average difference of 3.1% for each observer. 2D and 3D sagittal image sets had the highest intra- and inter observer differences (over 15%). A 2D axial 'double oblique' sequence was found to produce the best intra- (average difference of 0.6%) and inter-observer (mean SD of 9.2%) consistency and greatest conformity (average 0.80). Conclusions: There was little difference between 2D and 3D-based scanning sequences; however the increased scanning time of 3D sequences have potential to introduce greater patient motion artifacts. A contiguous 2D sequence based on an axial T2-weighted turbo-spin-echo (TSE) sequence orientated in all planes of the treatment applicator provided consistent tumour delineation whilst allowing applicator reconstruction and treatment planning.
