Technologies developed through research into the physical sciences have been instrumental in the advances of medical sciences. All of the well-known imaging modalities, such as PET, CT and MRI, as well as therapeutic technologies from linear accelerators to hadron therapy can all trace their origins back to physics. Physics research continues to make advances that will aid the detection and treatment of cancers in the future. This workshop will aim to update the clinical community of these exciting developments.
The STFC and CERN both have an interest in the sharing of knowledge between the physics and medical communities and have a proven track record of supporting the development of new technologies for both the detection and treatment of tumours.
The main technology developments that will be discussed will fall into four general categories:
•Modelling and simulation techniques for treatment planning
•Grid computing for data sharing
Benefits of Attending
• Review the status of cancer in the UK, in terms of incidence and long term prognosis
• Showcase novel technologies and approaches, from both STFC and non-STFC scientists, which could be applied to cancer diagnosis and treatment
• Showcase on-going and completed projects
• Opportunity for instrumentation companies and academics to exhibit novel technologies
• Provide a forum for open debate and networking
• Promote the formation of collaborations for future work
The events will take place from 9.30 – 4.40pm at Hamilton House, London
Please note that all exhibition spaces are now full.
