Medical Imaging Physics (MIP) Gerd Lutters
Topics of current interest in physics of diagnostic imaging as applied in medicine. Support the medical physicist contributing to the effectiveness of radiological imaging procedures.
Reference Dosimetry Stephanie Lang
Adapt the recommendations on reference dosimetry of photons in the MV range, of photons in the kV range and of electrons, in close collaboration with METAS.
IGRT Jean-François Germond
A general recommendation on Quality Control in IGRT has been published. The next step will be a detailed report on how to perform the periodical checks.
IMRT Raphaël Moeckli
A recommendation on Quality Control in IMRT has been published. The next step will the a report on shielding requirements and techniques for special treatment procedures (like IMRT, IMAT, Tomotherapy, …).
