SUBJECT: Organizing 1st Conference on Advances in Medical Physics and Biophysics

Department of Physics, in collaboration with the Institute of Nuclear Medicine and Oncology, Lahore (INMOL), plans to organize 1st Conference on Advances in Medical Physics and Biophysics”.

Program Schedule:

Please find the details of the program below:

Date: May 15, 2016
Time: 10:00 am to 5:00 pm

Venue: Defence Road Campus, The University of Lahore

Objectives:

This conference aims to highlight the importance of Medical Physics and Biophysics in our everyday life. The goal is to promote scientific exchange, share the ideas about challenges in different areas of Medical Physics and Biophysics and learn about technologies to overcome those challenges. This would be an excellent opportunity for passionate researchers and students to enhance their skills, broaden their knowledge, draw on the recent methodologies and techniques, and equip themselves with the research going on in these areas.

This conference is a first of the series to be followed in coming years.

Main Areas to be covered:

·         Phase Imaging C.T. dose assessment

·         Development of modern radiotherapy
