Radiotherapy Physics provides comprehensive scientific support to the Radiotherapy department.
We are a highly specialist service with extensive expertise in the physics of radiotherapy, which is essential for safe, accurate and effective radiotherapy treatment. As part of our commitment to consistently deliver a high quality service, we work within a British Standards Institute certified quality management system.
Radiotherapy physicists and technicians are an integral part of the team, and work closely with clinical oncologists and therapeutic radiographers to deliver the best possible treatment outcomes for all patients. We play a key role in the implementation of new technologies and advanced techniques.
- Treatment planning - in vivo dosimetry; immobilisation and shielding; commissioning, maintenance and quality assurance of radiotherapy equipment
- Optimisation of imaging parameters
- Implementation of new techniques and quality management
Radiotherapy Physics is based at City Hospital campus within Nottingham Radiotherapy Centre
