Soon Huh, PhD

Dr. Huh is an Associate Professor in the Department of Radiation Oncology at the University of Florida. He has extensive experience in developing treatment plans and quality assurance procedures for advanced radiotherapy devices such as Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS) using Electa/Vero/TrueBeam linear accelerators and proton therapy. Dr. Huh also specializes in techniques such as Image Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT), Cone-beam Computer Tomography (CBCT) and Magnetic Resonance imaging (MRI) to assure high-quality images and accurate treatment of more than a dozen types of tumors in adults and children. He has collaborated with other academic medical centers to develop proton therapy protocols for treatment of pancreatic, anal, rectal and cervical cancers. He has fabricated various phantoms for quality assurance such as breast deformable phantom, moving lung phantoms, and MR-safe headset to immobilize pediatric cancer patients and to provide music during scans. Dr. Huh is an accomplished researcher and his work has been published in multiple journals. He trains radiation therapists, medical/physics residents and dosimetrists. He is an American Board of Radiology (ABR)-certified physicist.
