Speeding up CT scans with cellphone technology, ultrasound warning signal for breast cancer

prostate implants for cancer. They collaborate with radiation oncologists to design cancer treatment plans. They monitor equipment and procedures to insure that cancer patients receive the prescribed dose of radiation to the correct location. AAPM's annual meeting provides some of medical physicists latest innovations, which may be coming soon to a hospital near you.

HOW TO COVER THE MEETING

The AAPM meeting webpage (http://www.aapm.org/meetings/07AM/) contains links to the full program. By the time of the meeting, the site's Virtual Pressroom (http://www.aapm.org/meetings/07AM/VirtualPressRoom/) will contain expanded writeups on selected topics as well as other press materials.
