About this event

Ever since 1895 when Wilhelm Rontgen realised the possible applications of X-rays, radiation science has played a central role in the diagnosis of diseases and the treatment of human illness. Developments for both medical devices and radiopharmaceuticals have relied on the interchange of knowledge and expertise between academic research laboratories, clinical centres and industry. This seminar will review some of the basic physics involved, the technology and engineering that is used to provide us with some very complicated, modern-day patient procedures. Recent advances of radiation science and physics will be described together with a commentary on the role of the various organisations and individuals who have collaborated to validate, to register and to implement these latest medical techniques.
