Dr Tyrie is proficient in the use of 3D conformal radiation therapy (3DCRT), volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT), image guided radiotherapy (IGRT) and in the use of high dose rate (HDR) brachytherapy for the treatment of prostate cancer. 

She has a particular interest in quality of life issues regarding the treatment of prostate cancer. Dr Tyrie has been actively involved in the national implementation of new technologies used to treat prostate and breast cancer, and has an ongoing commitment to research into these tumour sites.
