Description: An MD Anderson physician-scientist who uses a mathematical program to pull lung function data from CT scans in hopes of improving treatment of lung cancer and other diseases has won an NIH Director's New Innovator Award from the National Institutes of Health.

The award provides $1.5 million over five years to Thomas Guerrero, M.D., Ph.D., associate professor in Radiation Oncology. Guerrero and colleagues have developed a mathematical program -- an algorithm -- designed to more accurately identify damaged areas of the lung.
