This week in Sydney representatives met from the Medical Physics University Network. The network is comprised of each of the six Australian universities that offer postgraduate programs in medical physics. Among the subjects of discussion were continued development of a resource network, a pilot program in course-sharing, virtual training and research interactions. The collaborative work continues to support the development and capacity of the medicalRead more…

The ViewRay (TM) system, which provides the world’s first MRI-guided radiation therapy, enables clinicians to track the patient’s internal anatomy in real time whilst simultaneously administering radiotherapy treatment. Guided by MRI images, the radiation beams are kept on target, yet without additional markers or exposure to ionising radiation. A presentation on the ViewRay (TM) system will be held in Perth: 10:30 am, 20 June, 2014 MeetingRead more…
