Postgraduate Course in Proton Therapy Physics
Proton therapy physics – a postgraduate course
13-17 May 2019, Department of Medical Radiation Physics, Lund University
The course covers the path of the proton from production and delivery until it deposits its
energy in the patient. The pathway goes through interaction mechanisms, dosimetry, tissue
characterization, dose planning, and radiation biology, to conclude with clinical examples
and future visions. During the course, the participants will be given time for discussion and
reflection in groups.
The course is primarily aimed at PhD students in the medical radiation physics research field.
The course is also suitable for Medical Physicists in the national MPE training program
(Swedish ST-fysikerutbildning). However, all interested in proton therapy physics are
welcome to participate – subject to availability.
