  • Dr. Andrew Schneier Ph. D., DABR (R,T), CMD, CRE (R,T,M), AMP, CSD 

Dr. Schneider graduated from the Medical College of Ohio in 1985 with a Ph.D. in Radiological Sciences.  His dissertation was titled: Transcient Dose Determination at an Interface Due to Electron Beam Irradiation. He has worked for the past 35 years in Radiation Oncology Physics accepting and commissioning 16 linear accelerators including CGR, AECL, Electa, Siemens and Varian equipment: MLC and EPID acceptance, commissioning and implementation:12 RTP systems commissioned including brachytherapy and external beam systems,  5 IMRT programs established and implemented, accelerator shielding design (20 facilities), R&V systems installed and configured, brachytherapy including IVBT, UGPI, GYN, interstitial and plaque, radiopharmaceutical therapy, NRC, state and local licensing, radiation therapy QA: neutron and photon radiation surveys. IMRT, IGRT, respiratory gating,, SRS, LDR and HDR experience. Pinnacle, Eclipse, Brachyvision, Variseed, IMPAC, ARIA experience. He also has extensive experience in Diagnostic Medical Physics and Nuclear Medicine Physics. 

  • Dr. Peter Sandwall Ph.D. DABR

Dr. Sandwall earned his doctorate from the University of Cincinnati in 2014. His area of interest was in the development of a Novel Flourometric Dosimetry System.  He has numerous publications including
