Medical physics is the application of physics principles to medicine or health care. It's basically a way of using our physics knowledge to develop tools and treatments that help humans live longer and be healthier.
Diagnostic radiological physics
Diagnostic radiological physics is the branch of physics associated with diagnostic procedures that use xrays, gamma rays, ultrasound, radio frequency radiation, and magnetic sources (magnetic resonance imaging ). In this subfield, physicists advise on the protocols and technology used for the creation of images that are generated by these diagnostic methods. Responsibilities of the medical physicist include establishing, monitoring, and evaluating procedures related to equipment use; reporting to regulatory agencies on compliance matters; evaluating and monitoring equipment; and acting as consultant on matters related to instrumentation, equipment, and use of these radiological imaging systems.
Therapeutic radiological physics
Therapeutic radiological physics concerns itself with the physics of therapeutic procedures that use x rays, gamma rays, neutrons, charged particles, and radionuclides from sealed sources (radioactive material that is sealed permanently in a container). These therapeutic procedures are often used in the treatment of cancer and include external beam therapy (where ionizing radiation is directed at the cancer site) and brachytherapy (where containers with radioactive material are placed near or in the tumor). Duties of the therapeutic radiological physicist include providing consultation on matters related to appropriate radiation dose and risks to patients; managing procedures and equipment related to dose and delivery of therapeutic radiation; reporting to regulatory agencies on compliance matters; and designing, evaluating, and monitoring radiation safety program related to therapeutic radiological procedures.
Medical nuclear physics
Also known as nuclear medicine physics, medical nuclear physics is the study of physics related to medical procedures requiring the use of radionuclides (except those radionuclides from sealed sources). These procedures may be diagnostic or therapeutic, and include such procedures as single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), positron emission tomography (PET ), and radioimmunotherapy (radioisotopes attached to molecules that can be targeted to cancer cells). The medical nuclear physicist acts as consultant on matters related to appropriate radionuclide dose and risks; manages procedures and equipment related to dose and delivery of radionuclide imaging equipment; reports to regulatory agencies on compliance matters; and designs, evaluates, and monitors radiation safety program related to the nuclear medicine facility.
