4D proton therapy, radiation-resistant tumors, interpreting medical images

College Park, MD, June 28, 2005 - How can the act of simply imaging a tumor reveal cancer regions that will be invulnerable to normal levels of radiation? What are the biggest errors in reading image scans and how can they be fixed? What recent advances are making subatomic protons increasingly desirable for treating lung tumors? What can local governments do to better prepare for radiological emergencies?

These and other questions will be addressed at the 47th Annual Meeting of the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM), which will take place July 24-28, 2005 in Seattle, WA at the newly expanded Washington State Convention & Trade Center, located at Pike Street and 7th Avenue. The scientific program will begin on Sunday, July 24 at 8:00 AM and conclude on Thursday, July 28 at noon. Approximately 1152 papers will be presented on subjects at the intersection of physics and medicine. Many of these topics deal with the development of state-of-the-art imaging and therapeutic devices, and the new techniques that go along with them.
