Associate Professor Thomas Eade
A/Prof Thomas Eade returned to RNSH in January 2007, after time spent working as the Thomas Baker Fellow at the Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia, USA. Fox Chase is one of the leading specialist centres to treat prostate cancer in the USA. A/Prof Eade trained in the latest radiation therapy techniques including IMRT, intra-operative real-time seed brachytherapy and high dose rate brachytherapy.
Recognized across the country for his expertise in the IMRT/VMAT and IGRT techniques for the treatment of prostate cancer, he has led the way for the NSCC to become one of the leading prostate cancer radiation treatment centres in Australia and he has been a guest speaker at state, national and international meetings on advanced radiation techniques.
In addition to his strong patient care and outcome focus, A/Prof Eade is also a committed researcher and has published in major international oncology journals. He is the Director of Research in Radiation Oncology at NSCC and also developed the prospective database for prostate cancer radiotherapy, which is in use across the North Shore and Central Coast campuses. A key area of interest for him is in researching and evaluating the delivery of new technology in radiotherapy. He is the Principle Investigator for the first Australian study of Stereotactic Radiotherapy for prostate cancer (HEAT).
