In this page we are going to introduce one of our bright Medical Physics graduates, Mr. Tom Milan. Tom started his MPhys (Medical Physics) at UWA in 2016. His research project was on “Evaluation of the Clinical Impact of the Linac MLC and Gantry Sag in VMAT” supervised by Dr. Pejman Rowshanfarzad from the MedicalRead more…

 

During February 2019 the Medical Physics group received a visit from Prof. Renaud de Crevoisier and Prof. Oscar Acosta from the Laboratoire Traitement du Signal et de l’Image at the University of Rennes, France, joint supervisors of PhD student Eugenia Mylona who is spending four months with our group. Professors de Crevoisier and Acosta undertakeRead more…

 

On 8th of February, we were honoured to host Prof. De Crevoisier, Radiation Oncologist from Centre Eugene Marquis, Rennes, France. He discussed some of the research and development currently undertaken in Rennes towards adaptive radiotherapy techniques, coupled with work in development of predictive models of treatment toxicity. This includes a focus on the sources ofRead more…

 

Eugenia “Jenny” Mylona is visiting Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital during December 2018 – April 2019, as part of a collaboration between SCGH and the University of Rennes, to use image processing and statistical approaches to anatomically localise the relationship between radiotherapy dose delivery and resulting treatment toxicity. With knowledge of such relationships, it will be possibleRead more…

 

Marco Marcello, our PhD student, has been awarded the Australian Institute of Nuclear Science and Engineering (AINSE) travel award to attend EPSM 2018 – based on the scores provided by reviewers of abstracts submitted for the EPSM conference. We would like to congratulate him on his great achievement.   Find out more about the program inRead more…

 

On Saturday 15/9/2018 our PhD student Emily Her and our Master student Thomas Klein were awarded the prestigious Robert Stanford Award and John Black Award for their presentations in the annual ACPSEM-WA branch scientific meeting. Emily’s presentation title was: “Hypofractionated intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) for prostate cancer using patient-specific cancer biology“. And Thomas presented: “Dosimetric VerificationRead more…

 

Mario started his MPhys (Medical Physics) at our university in 2016. His research project was on “Evaluation of a mobile C-arm cone-beam CT in interstitial high-dose rate brachytherapy treatment planning” supervised by Adj/Prof Martin Ebert, Dr. David Waterhouse, and Dr. Pejman Rowshanfarzad. The project was carried out at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital. Here are commentsRead more…

 

This post is about Alex Burton, who has recently finished his Masters in Medical Physics at UWA. “Alex was one of our most talented and extremely hard working postgraduate students. He had real interest in medical physics which was reflected in his excellent exam marks (all HD). Alex had a creative mind, and was aRead more…

Left to right: Josh, Rebecca, Dane, Emily, and Mario The title of their presentations were as follows: – MultiLeaf Collimator Positioning for Small field Radiotherapy: A New Investigation (Joshua Hiatt) – OptimisingRead more…

 

Today we are going to introduce Mr. Ryan Begley one of our MPhys (Medical Physics) graduates. Ryan has started his PhD in neurophotonics at the school of physics, UWA. For his PhD, Ryan is building a laser microscope and using this to image individual neurons and investigate the functional changes produced by terahertz radiation. TheRead more…

 

On Wednesday November 2, 2016,  Kalam (Minty) James Ciantar one of our Masters students presented his final research outcomes to the school of physics at UWA. Minty’s thesis title was: “Voxel-based Analysis of Kidney Response to Radiation using SPECT/CT Imaging“, under supervision of Adj/Prof. Martin Ebert.   The abstract of his thesis is as follows:Read more…

 

Three of our postgraduate students attended the EPSM-2015 conference in Wellington, New Zealand from 8th to 12th of November. Calyn Moulton presented part of his PhD project. The titles of his presentations were: ● Parameters for the Lyman-Kutcher-Burman model of normal tissue complication probability based on late rectal bleeding events after prostate radiotherapy. ● LateRead more…
