Dr. Truong is the Chair and Professor of Radiation Oncology at BUSM and Chief of Radiation Oncology at Boston Medical Center. She received her medical degree from the University of New South Wales, Sydney Australia and completed her residency in Radiation Oncology at New York University Medical Center, her last year as chief resident. She is board certified in Radiation Oncology by the American Board of Radiology. Her specialties include the treatment of head and neck, skin and central nervous system malignancies, as well as benign diseases, including Airway Amyloidosis. Dr. Truong serves on a number of national committees including the Scientific Committee of the American Society for Therapeutic Radiation Oncology (ASTRO), on the head and neck and skin examination committee of the American Board of Radiology (ABR), and currently serves in NRG Oncology (National Surgical Adjuvant Breast and Bowel Project (NSABP), the Radiation Therapy Oncology Group (RTOG), and the Gynecologic Oncology Group (GOG)) as the Quality of Life Head and Neck Liaison. She is the Quality of Life Co-Chair on several international head and neck cancer multicenter trials conducted by the NRG Oncology group. She contributes her radiation expertise to the National Cancer Institute’s Adult Oncology Treatment editorial board. She also leads the Cyberknife Radiosurgery program for head and neck malignancies and brain tumors. She is actively involved in promoting clinical research activities at Boston Medical Center, and was awarded funding as Principal Investigator for an American Cancer Society/Boston University Institutional Grant for the investigation of novel function imaging in head and neck cancer using CT perfusion Imaging in Patients with Head and Neck Cancer undergoing Conformal Radiotherapy. Dr. Truong has also contributed to several Boston Medical Center funded research efforts including two U.S. Army Medical Research and Material Command Office Center of Excellence Program Projects and was a project principal investigator of a department of defense funded study investigating the role of stereotactic body radiotherapy for recurrent head and neck cancer.
