Various research projects are available in the use of monte-carlo techniques in radiotherapy and medical imaging. These include modelling radiotherapy linear accelerators, patient dosimetric verification and in-vivo treatment verification using electronic portal imaging devices.
You will in a multi-disciplinary team of clinical medical physicists, clinicians and radiation therapists. Your work will involve experimental measurements and computational simulation and data analysis.
The projects all aim to improve the understanding of the accuracy and precision of radiation therapy planning and delivery. Ultimately the projects aim to have an impact on treatment outcomes, improving tumour control and reducing side effects.
