Biography
Kyle R. Padgett, Ph.D. received his Ph.D. in Nuclear Engineering with a specialty in Medical Physics from the University of Florida in 2005. Immediately following his Ph.D. he joined the faculty at the University of Miami in the department of Radiology to create and run the “High-Field MRI Bio-Medical Research Facility” which focused in the following areas of research; spinal cord injury, cancer, myocardial infarction, stroke and the structural and functional connectivity of the brain. In 2011 Dr. Padgett became a faculty member in the department of Radiation Oncology at the University of Miami to focus on integrating advanced MRI imaging applications into the radiation oncology with a focus on MRI guided radiotherapy. Dr. Padgett is board certified by the ABR in Therapeutic Radiological Physics and is licensed by the state of Florida as an authorized medical physicist with additional rights to perform high dose rate brachytherapy physics support and MRI guided radiotherapy utilizing the MRIdian™ system. He has published many peer-reviewed journal articles and scientific abstracts with over 20 articles and 40 abstracts. He is also a reviewer for the International Journal of Radiation Oncology, Biology, Physics Journal and the Journal of Medical Physics.
