Speakers: Dr Stephen Keevil

Medical physics developed during the twentieth century alongside increasing use of ionising radiations and imaging in medicine. However this picture conceals a much older and richer relationship, encompassing ancient Egyptian surgery, Leonardo, and seventeenth century mechanistic philosophy. This historical perspective helps us to appreciate the breadth of the current, and potential future, role of physics in medicine.
Lecture begins 7.30pm. Dr Stephen Keevil is from King’s College London.
