Programs Another medical physics thread. PhD.

  1. Apr 4, 2009 #1

    So i've seen a lot of medical physics related posts on this forum recently, as well as some good answers to questions (thanks go out in particular to Choppy!) and would like to get out-of-the-way my support for a medical physics subforum. Anyway, on to the point.

    I'll be graduating from a physics degree shortly, and haven't got anything sorted for next year as far as work/research projects etc. go - partly because i've been taking time to think and partly because of personal circumstances. That said, I've been interested in medical physics for a while so I've been trying to get an idea of the active areas of research that are around at the moment, with a view to applications for next year. So far, i've taken an interest in radiation physics as well as ophthalmic and brain imaging - I'd like to hear from any medphys researchers out there either about their own area or links to any review papers on 'seminal' type work for the field, basically so I can get a start on ideas for where I might wish to work.

    Thank you, Choppy, that looks to be exactly what I'm looking for. I'm going to spend a good bit of time reading through those, as well as your own work before posting further.
