Speakers: Dr Stephen Keevil

Medical physics, as usually understood, developed during the twentieth century alongside increasing use of ionising radiation 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.
