He heads the brachytherapy program at the Odette Cancer Centre, and has extensive experience in both permanent seed and high dose-rate (HDR) brachytherapy for prostate cancer. Dr. Morton is president of the Canadian Brachytherapy Group.

He's developed a unique HDR brachytherapy treatment protocol which has been adopted in many centres across Canada, the United States and Europe.
