Dr. I-Chow Hsu, who goes by Joe, is a radiation oncologist with expertise in brachytherapy, a form of radiation therapy in which the source of radiation is placed inside the body to directly target a cancer site. (This treatment is often used for prostate cancer that has not spread beyond the gland.)

Hsu has special research interests in using brachytherapy and hyperthermia (killing cancer cells through exposure to high temperatures) to treat cancers of the genital and urinary organs, as well as gynecologic cancers.

Hsu earned his medical degree at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. He completed a residency in radiation oncology at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital and Columbia University.

Hsu is a fellow of the American College of Radiology and American Society for Radiation Oncology. He is an active member of numerous professional societies, including the American Society for Radiation Oncology, American Brachytherapy Society and Society for Thermal Medicine. He chairs the Radiation Therapy Oncology Group's committee on brachytherapy.
