Senior Researcher Associate/Honorary Consultant Radiologist
Dr Ramona Woitek obtained her medical degree in 2008 at the Medical University of Vienna, Austria. Between 2008 and 2014, she was a Radiology registrar at the Department of Biomedical Imaging and Image-guided Therapy at the Medical University of Vienna. In 2015, she obtained her PhD in fetal MRI at the Medical University of Vienna.
Between 2014 and 2017, she completed subspecialty training at the Division of Breast Imaging at the Medical University of Vienna.
Her research at the University of Cambridge is focused on oncologic imaging:
Together with Prof Evis Sala and her group she is working on the integration of radiomics and circulating tumour DNA in patients with ovarian cancer and metastatic breast cancer. The aim is to improve response assessment and develop models to predict treatment response and patient survival.
- Ovarian cancer segmentation and tissue-specific sub-segmentation on CT images
- Integration of Radiomics and circulating tumour DNA (ctDNA) for the development of predictive and prognostic biomarkers on patients with ovarian cancer
- Metastatic breast cancer
Dr Ramona Woitek’s work on early breast cancer focuses on hyperpolarised carbon-13 MRI and how this novel technique can be used to assess inter- and intratumoral heterogeneity and treatment response. This work is undertaken together with Dr Ferdia Gallagher and his group.
Dr Ramona Woitek’s work is closely tied to the Mark Foundation Institute for Integrated Cancer Medicine and the CRUK Cambridge Centre.
