An ICTP Meeting

The Physics of Medical Imaging equipment is complex and the safe function of this equipment requires medical physicists trained in theory, imaging procedures and applications.  The Directors/lecturers in the ICTP College-2024 are very experienced medical physicists with international reputation.

Physics of the following contemporary Medical Imaging Equipment, plus related theory, principles, safety, optimisation and education transfer will be covered:
  • X-ray sources of radiation
  • Digital radiography, fluoroscopy, mammography
  • New radiation detectors
  • Multi Detector Computed Tomography
  • Nuclear Medicine Imaging
  • SPECT&PET Tomography
  • Hybrid Imaging systems
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging
  • Safety and quality control
  • Systems for PACS
  • Capacity Building Principles and organisation of Medical Physics activities
  • Resources and Methods for Effective Learning
