This is a unique opportunity to bring together people from diverse areas of Medical Physics to make contacts in the wider community and discuss potential collaboration. Our invited speakers will discuss the translation of new innovative developments into clinical practice in Medical Physics and the processes involved in bringing new technology into clinical use.
• Prof Nick Stone, Professor of Biomedical Imaging and Biosensing at the University of Exeter
• Dr John Dickson, Principal Physicist at University College London Hospital
• Prof Ben Varcoe, Professor of Quantum Information Science, Leeds University and Dr David Brettle Head of Medical Physics and Engineering, Leeds Teaching Hospitals.
Prof Stone will be speaking on novel optical imaging techniques and their application to cancer diagnosis and staging, Dr Dickson will cover recent advances in detector and image reconstruction technology for Nuclear Medicine applications and Prof Varcoe and Dr Brettle will give a case example of taking the development of a new cardiac magnetometer from the university lab and into clinical practice. Further details on our speakers and the topics to be discussed can be found attached.
There will be a networking session over coffee during the afternoon and at the close of the event to allow plenty of opportunity for informal discussion.
