Dr. Charlie Hamm received his MD degree from the Pomeranian Medical University Stettin, Poland where he is currently a PhD student in the Department of Radiology. In the past, he has been a postgraduate research fellow at the Interventional Oncology Lab at the Yale University, USA, focusing on imaging-based diagnosis and interventional treatment approaches of liver cancer. His overall research interests involve clinical, translational, and novel computational techniques to provide prostate and liver cancer patients with the least invasive approaches in diagnosis, treatment, and surveillance.
His current research at the MITT Lab explores the ability of 3D quantitative CT image analysis to predict the hepato-pulmonary shunt fraction in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma before Yttrium90 (Y90) radioembolization. Preliminary results suggest that the usage of imaging biomarkers may potentially narrow down the selection of patients who will undergo angiographic shunt evaluation studies prior to Y90 radioembolization.
Apart from his work in the MITT lab, his research interests also include unconventional scientific aspects of radiology. As a doctoral student of the Charité under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Patrick Asbach and in cooperation with the Museum fuer Naturkunde Berlin, Dr. Hamm studies fossil Tyrannosaurus Rex bones using quantitative and qualitative radiological imaging.
