Stereotactic radiotherapy involves the very precise delivery of narrow beams of radiation. Measurement of the properties of those beams is complicated due to their small size, and conversion to dose requires the application of ambiguous correction factors. Physicists from the Centre for Medical Radiation Physics (CMRP) at the University of Wollongong have spent a decadeRead more…

 

During February 2-11, the Radiation Oncology group hosted Dr Sarah Gulliford from the Royal Marsden Hospital / Institute for Cancer Research, Sutton, United Kingdom. Sarah first visited in March 2012. Since then, several members from the group have visited Sarah in Sutton. Sarah’s research focuses on the reactions of normal tissues following radiotherapy and has assistedRead more…

 

This week we welcome Dr Sarah Gulliford, Research Physicist from the Royal Marsden Hospital, who is visiting the Radiation Oncology group at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital. Prof. Martin Ebert and PhD students, Azrul Yahya and Calyn Moulton, visited collaborators at the Royal Marsden just over a year ago. Dr Gulliford works on outcomes analysis from trials for prostate and headRead more…

 

The NHMRC have generously provided $535,000 in support of a research project being coordinated by Prof Martin Ebert. The project focuses on the use of radiotherapy for treating prostate cancer, where questions need to be answered regarding the relationship between radiographic identification of the prostate organ, the role radiotherapy treatment planning has in targeting theRead more…

 

This month in Sydney Research Assoc/Prof. Mike House, Asst/Prof. Pejman Rowshanfarzad and Asst/Prof. Anita Adhitya met with representatives from each of the Australian universities that offer postgraduate programs in medical physics.  The group is developing the national Medical Physics University Network, a collaboration to support the development and capacity of the medical physics community.  TheRead more…

 

This week in Sydney we met with representatives from the five other universities in Australia that offer a program in medical physics.  Developing a national Medical Physics University Network — comprised of Queensland University of Technology, RMIT University, University of Adelaide, The University of Sydney, The University of Western Australia and University of Wollongong –Read more…

 

During October 2013, Prof. Martin Ebert and PhD students, Azrul Yahya and Calyn Moulton, are visiting the Institute for Cancer Research and Royal Mardsen Hospital Sutton, Surrey UK, to work collaboratively on the analysis of data from radiotherapy clinical trials. This analysis focuses on a decade-long mission of the group to obtain data on the side-effects experienced by menRead more…
