Research Interests

Dr. Finger has a particular interest in ophthalmic radiation therapy. As Chair of the Guideline Task Force for Plaque Radiation Therapy for choroidal melanoma and retinoblastoma of the American Brachytherapy Society as well as the clinical director of the TG-129 for the American Brachytherapy Society, Dr. Finger has continued to work on making plaque irradiation safer and more effective. He has pioneered the use of palladium-103 plaque radiation and 3D ultrasound plaque localization as well as both laser photocoagulation and anti-VEGF therapy for radiation retinopathy (and optic neuropathy).
