Price Jackson is a diagnostic imaging medical physicist working with the Radiology and Nuclear Medicine departments at Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre. He has worked at the hospital since 2011 undertaking a mix of research and clinical work. Initially, this was in support of Peter Mac’s radionuclide therapy program for Neuroendocrine Cancer where he developed a number of computational tools to record radiation dose and estimate biological effect following treatment with Lutetium Octreotate. This has extended more recently into follow-up for Lu-PSMA therapy in prostate cancer where Price assists with several clinical trials coordinated through the ProsTIC Centre of Excellence. He has been awarded fellowships to support research in neuroendocrine cancer through the Victorian Cancer agency and prostate cancer with the Prostate Cancer Foundation.
Specific research interests are in areas of medical image analysis including automated contouring, radiation dose analysis in both nuclear medicine and radiographic imaging, and image co-registration. He is an active developer of AI methods to assist with a number of these analysis tasks. Price now supervises PhD and MSc research candidates and where possible enjoys being involved in teaching across specialties.
