Summer School on Imaging Modalities in Medical Physic
Start Date: Aug 20th, 2018 08:00
End Date: Aug 21st, 2018 16:40
Location: Copenhagen, Denmark
Images in medicine such as computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) play a key role in the today’s diagnosis and treatment of patients worldwide. Further, these major imaging modalities have recently been introduced as 3D-based tools in image guided radiation therapy of cancer patients. This summer school will cover the basic physical mechanisms behind the CT and MRI modalities and the techniques that transfer the physics into decision making images. The summer school is intended for professionals and students who work or intends to work in the field of medical physics such as master and PhD students, medical physicists in training, and, persons in health care who need to upgrade their knowledge in this area.
