Thinking Outside the Box

When exceptional researchers see the need for better techniques, they go beyond [their usual areas of expertise] to find answers. Sometimes those answers are found by combining unrelated and unusual bits of technology. In the case of Dr. Guang Jia, associate professor of physics, and Joseph “Joe” Steiner, a Ph.D. candidate who works with Jia, they pulled together radiation technologies, processes, and equipment from a variety of areas in medical physics to arrive at a better diagnostic tool for early detection of prostate cancer.
