Dartmouth Research Scientist Petr Bruza, PhD, was awarded ‘Best in Physics’ for his work in Imaging Physics, presented at the AAPM Annual Meeting in Denver, CO, on July 30, 2017.
Petr’s ePoster, titled “3D Cherenkov Sheet Molecular Imaging provides 100 micron whole body spatial resolution,” reported on his work to test the spatial and temporal imaging resolution limits for 3D fluorescence intensity and lifetime kinetics in whole bodies of small animals, using thin MV linac photon sheets to induce Cherenkov excitation light.
AAPM’s “Best in Physics” presentations are the 15 studies that score highest in the abstract review process. Five studies in each of three categories – imaging, therapy and joint imaging-therapy – are then judged by scientific program directors to reflect the highest levels of scientific quality and innovation. Founded in 1958, AAPM seeks to identify and implement improvements in patient safety for the medical use of radiation in imaging and radiation therapy.
