AAPM 52nd Annual Meeting, Philadelphia, Pa., July 18-22, 2010
Date:7/7/2010

Washington, D.C. (July 1, 2010) -- Thousands of scientists and health professionals from the field of medical physics will meet at the 52nd meeting of the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) from July 18 - 22, 2010 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. They will present the latest technological advances in medical imaging and radiation therapy and discuss the safety and regulatory issues facing the field today.

AAPM is the premier organization in medical physics, a broadly-based scientific and professional discipline encompassing physics principles and applications in medicine and biology. Its membership includes medical physicists who specialize in research that develops cutting-edge technologies and board-certified clinical medical physicists who apply these technologies in community hospitals, clinics, and academic medical centers.

The presentations at the AAPM meeting will cover topics ranging from new ways of imaging the human body to the latest clinical developments on treating cancer with high energy X-rays and electrons from accelerators, brachytherapy with radioactive sources, and protons. Many of the talks and posters are focused on patient safety -- tailoring therapy to the specific needs of people undergoing treatment, such as shaping emissions to conform to tumors, or finding ways to image children safely at lower radiation exposures while maintaining good image quality.
