October 12, 2006

BRANDON, MB - On
Tuesday, October 17 from 12:40 p.m. to 1:30 p.m., the Brandon University
Science Seminar series will present a talk by Dr. Stephen Pistorius, Adjunct
Professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of
Manitoba titled 75 years of Medical Physics in ManitobaŚRoles,
Responsibilities and Rewards. Dr. Pistorius' talk will take place in room
3-42 of the Brodie Sciences Building and is free of charge. All are welcome!

"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."

All presentations in the Brandon University Science Seminar Series are free
of charge and open to all.
