"My talk will illustrate the developments of Medical Physics, ranging from
some crude (but still successful) methods in the early 1900's through to
those techniques in place today that use multi-million dollar pieces of
equipment," says Dr. Pistorius. "In doing so I will highlight the roles and
responsibilities of the medical physicist, some of the research that is
currently being carried out and will describe the route that one's academic
career will have to take to enable one to reap the exciting rewards that are
part of a Medical Physicist's daily life."
