Reminder: FSPA Early Career seminar – Sept. 28

The FSPA Early-Career seminar series is continuing with its next talk tomorrow, Wednesday, Sept. 28, at noon CT (Hybrid mode).

In-person location: ND/ Oscillatorium (WH13NW).

Virtual connection details: please click here. If you attended our past seminars, the Zoom link remains the same.

We are pleased to host Benton Pahlka, previously of MINOS and MINERvA, now a medical physicist at Texas Children’s Hospital, who will be talking about “Medical Imaging and Medical Nuclear Physics at a Pediatric Hospital.”

Abstract:
The field of medical physics offers several pathways toward an enjoyable and meaningful career. In this talk, I will discuss the types of medical physicists (with an emphasis on imaging physics) and describe the roles played by both clinical and academic medical physicists. I will discuss some of the fundamental imaging physics modalities and concepts. I will then briefly discuss the requirements to enter this field. Finally, I will present a couple of case studies for patients treated in a Texas-based pediatric hospital using unique radiopharmaceutical therapy agents.
