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

ant Secretary of Washington State's Division of Environmental Health, will describe emergency preparedness and terrorism response training for professionals at the statewide level. On Thursday, July 28, at 10:00 AM, Debra McBaugh, the chairperson of the Conference of Radiation Control Program Directors, will discuss how medical physicists have unique skills that can assist states in terrorism response. McBaugh was part of the State of Washington's team that participated in a national exercise that included responding to a simulated dirty bomb attack. Other sessions throughout the week cover topics such as how Medicare and Medicaid reform are affecting insurance reimbursement of radiological procedures, medical errors, the impact of recent Nuclear Regulatory Commission training and experience regulations on the handlers of radioactive material in diagnosis and therapy, and reforms in the radiological health programs at the FDA.
