Over the past years, Mr. Zamboglou and his research team have been able to expand the spectrum of treatment indications for interventional radiotherapy. The capacity of advanced image guidance and individualised dose shaping, enabled the effective application of interstitial brachytherapy for the treatment of prostate and breast cancer, sarcomas as well as brain tumour and soft tissue recurrences.
Especially in the curative treatment of prostate cancer, brachytherapy yields the same treatment results compared to radical surgery. However, the percentage of treatment related urinary incontinence is insignificant and the proportion of patients with preserved erectile function exceeds 80%.
Through progresses in the optimisation of dose distribution and advanced methods of virtual treatment simulation, Professor Zamboglou has offered advanced interventional radiotherapeutical treatment to more than 15.000 patients. He trained physicians from more than 120 institutions, including 10 centres from Greece, in his brachytherapy method.
Professor Zamboglou’s research focuses primarily on the field of image guided three dimensional treatment planning with geometry oriented optimisation of dose distribution. His work consists of physical, biomedical and technological research activities and introduced advanced biomedical imaging techniques.
