Physics of Medical Imaging Course

Programme description

The course provides the necessary physics background that underpins day-to-day medical imaging physics activities. It is aimed primarily at new entrants to the profession, but should be of benefit to postgraduate students, postdoctoral research workers, physicist-managers, representatives of allied commercial organisations and anyone wishing to deepen or re-establish their understanding of the physics of medical imaging.

The faculty is composed mainly of physicists, many of whom are internationally renowned for their expertise. Key talks are delivered by clinicians and other scientists and provides the broader scientific and clinical perspective. Overviews of specialised or research related topics, such as MR Spectroscopy are given. 

There are many opportunities for informal discussions and there will be visits to the Department of Nuclear Medicine, Ultrasound, X-ray Computed Tomography and the MR Units of The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust and/or the research labs of The Institute of Cancer Research.

The programme consists of five separate courses. Each course is repeated annually.  Cost includes lunches and light refreshments and (with courses 2 - 5 only) a copy of Webb's Physics of Medical Imaging (2nd Edition, published 2012).

PLEASE NOTE: We hope to run these courses face to face this year.  However, depending on the pandemic we may have to change them to virtual courses.  In this case we will give you the option of attending the courses virtually and issue a partial refund, cancelling your place on the course and issuing you with a full refund or deferring your place to the following year - you will not be affected by any increase in course fees.
