A medical physics project to test and validate dose predictions from a computerised planning system against measured data obtained on the Imaging and Medical Beamline at The Australian Synchrotron.
NHMRC Project Grant
Our group performs medical physics and dosimetry work relating to Synchrotron Microbeam Radiation Therapy (MRT), an experimental form of radiotherapy which shows tremendous promise in preclinical trials. In collaboration with other groups, we are also investigating the radiobiology of synchrotron MRT.
All Synchrotron MRT research groups worldwide are multi-disciplinary. The field requires input and collaborations from medical physicists, radiation biologists, engineers, oncologists, and computer scientists.
