The programme 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 post-graduate students, post-doctoral 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. A selection of key talks delivered by clinicians and other scientists provides the necessary 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 and Computed Tomography and the MR Unit of The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust.
The programme consists of five separate courses. Each course is repeated annually.
