Just a quick post to let you know that there is now a medical physics events calendar on this site marking important dates (for conferences, annual meetings, workshops, symposiums, continuing education, training, etc). The link to the calendar is in the navigation bar at the top of the site. You can also access the medical physics calendar by clicking on the link below:
MTMI will be holding a Hands-On Nuclear Medicine Physics Workshop on April 25-26, 2009. This 2-day, 12-hour CAMPEP approved workshop will be held at the University of Iowa in Iowa City, IA and provides an opportunity to receive practical training on the testing and quality control procedures required for ACR and ICANL accreditation and for ongoing technical support of nuclear medicine facilities. The hands-on training program is organized with small group laboratory sessions using NM equipment and phantoms to demonstrate testing and QC procedures and is conducted by an experienced faculty. Due to the hands-on nature of this training, attendance is limited. So please register as soon as possible. More information (including registration and a detailed schedule) for the workshop can be found here.
The next physics program on the calendar is Hands-On Multi-Slice CT Workshop. This 3-day, 15-hour CAMPEP approved workshop will be held on May 29-31, 2009 at the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, TX. This workshop will emphasize the ACR CT facility accreditation process, testing procedures and the QA measurements required. The University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center has graciously allowed the use of several multi-slice CT units for this training. These will include GE 64 slice, Siemens 64 slice and Philips 64 slice CT units. More information (including registration and a detailed schedule) for the workshop can be found here.
