Nuclear Physics for Medicine

Particle accelerators, digital data acquisition, isotope technology, sophisticated detector systems with imaging software... You can find these instruments in a high tech physics research laboratory, or, if you look a bit closer, in a modern hospital as well.

Modern healthcare from diagnostics to therapy is largely based on physics. That is why NuPECC, the Nuclear Physics Expert Committee of the European Science Foundation compiled a report on the impact of nuclear physics in medicine.
