Summer school for early career scientists
A SUMMER school is being held for early career professionals to explore new developments in medical physics.
The Mayneord-Phillips Educational Programme (MPEP), run by the Institute of Physics, IPEM and the British Institute of Radiology, is a forum to explore new developments in medical physics, enhance subject-knowledge and form long-term networks.
‘Advances in Sold State Detectors for Early Diagnosis’ is being held from 4 to 6 July at St Anne’s College in Oxford. It will provide an opportunity for Clinical Scientists, post-graduate students, post-doctoral researchers, and engineers and innovators working on product solutions in industry to develop their interest and expertise in an exciting, nascent topic.
Topics to be covered include:
- Overview of the vast range of Silicon detectors
- Beyond Silicon-New Semiconductor materials (e.g. CdTe, CZT, etc.)
- Front-end Electronics for Spectroscopic Detectors
- CZT-based HEXITEC Detectors developed by STFC and their Medical Applications
- In silico-medicine: modelling of semiconductor detectors & imaging systems from 1st principles to in silico trials
- Overview of Photon-Counting Detectors for x-ray imaging
- Medical Applications of Medipix & Timepix Detector families developed by CERN
- Inorganic Scintillators – Medical Imaging Applications, with emphasis on Molecular Imaging
- Time-of-Flight PET (ultrafast imaging, 10ps resolution challenge, etc.)
- Radiography and Mammography:basic detector technology, clinical applications, recent developments
- APDs and SiPMs Detector technologies in Biomedical Imaging
- Computed Tomography: basic detector technology, clinical applications, recent developments with emphasis on Photon-Counting Multi-Spectral CT
- Quantum Imaging in Medical Imaging
- Solid-State Detector Advances and Emerging Applications of PET-based Molecular Imaging (e.g. Total-body EXPLORER, NeuroEXPLORER Brain PE T, etc.)
- Solid-State Detectors for novel SPECT Systems
Online registration is available until 24 June.
