The Science Council Session includes proffered abstracts on a topic at the cutting-edge of medical physics research, presented in a special, high-visibility proffered oral session. For the 2015 Annual Meeting, the Scientific Program invites abstract submissions on “Radiomics and Imaging Genomics,” emphasizing research in computational extraction of quantitative image features/phenotypes, statistical analysis of image data including robustness assessment, association to other measures of disease progression, treatment response, patient outcome, and/or genomic status, and harmonization techniques across systems and populations. Example areas of research include (but are not limited to):

  • Assessment and validation of computationally-extracted quantitative, image-based phenotypes in relation to cancer (e.g., lung or breast cancer) or other diseases, and association to disease progression, treatment response, patient outcome, and/or genomic status.
  • The effect of image quality and consistency in image acquisition / processing techniques on the reproducibility and validity of image-based phenotypes, yielding potential methods for standardization/harmonization.
  • The development of large-scale image data sets in support of radiomic / radiogenomic studies.

Criteria for abstract evaluation include the novelty of the research, the emphasis on quantitative statistical analysis of images and correlation/association to disease pathogenesis, and the potential impact / significance in diagnosis or therapy.

Innovation in Medical Physics Education

The Education Council of the AAPM is sponsoring a session to honor and publicize Innovation in Medical Physics Education. AAPM members are invited to submit an abstract describing innovative medical physics educational activities for radiology residents, radiation oncology residents, medical physicists, technologists or others. The abstract can describe novel teaching strategies such as team teaching or adult learning efforts, novel educational materials such as lectures, websites, educational videos or interactive media, novel program designs, or other innovations. Submissions will be judged on the following criteria: the level of innovation, the potential for educational use, the extent to which the innovation has already been implemented and assessed, and how readily the innovation could be implemented or used at a variety of other institutions.

The top six submissions will be invited to present their abstracts at the session during the Annual Meeting. Each speaker will be allocated 15 minutes. The top presenting abstract will be announced at the Awards Ceremony during the Annual Meeting and presented a plaque and a $2,000 prize. The Award for Innovation in Medical Physics Education is made possible by a generous bequest of Harold Marcus.

Meeting Theme

The theme of this year’s AAPM Annual Meeting is “Reinvigorating Scientific Excellence”. I chose this theme because I feel that AAPM has drifted a bit from its scientific roots; many of us (myself included) need to rejuvenate our enthusiasm as scientists. And we, as an organization, need to recognize that science is at the core of what we do. 

AAPM and its members have had our share of distractions in recent years, and to be sure; medicine in the United States (and elsewhere) is changing and we have to change with it. There are many ways to survive change, but I humbly suggest that one of the most important survival strategies that we collectively can adopt is to get better at what we do as scientists. 

Regardless of what your role is in the field of medical physics – a government regulator, a physicist with 110% clinical responsibilities, an educator, a medical physicist working in industry, an academic researcher, or any other role – we are all graduate-school educated scientists.  Utilization of the scientific methods brings valuable contributions to each of these settings, contributions that we are uniquely capable of providing. We have many differences in job function, but the single most important trait that binds AAPM members and trainees together is our contributions to and implementation of science. We can all improve our scientific skills by adopting a personal commitment to life-long learning. AAPM provides many venues for enhancing scientific proficiency;  I invite you – indeed I challenge you - to take advantage of the outstanding opportunities offered at this summer’s meeting to reinvigorate your scientific excellence.

While all of the sessions in this year’s AAPM Annual Meeting promise to be invigorating, the Scientific Program Committee and I have identified a number of sessions in this year’s meeting which are particularly reinvigorating, and these are marked by a special star. But the star is just a logo – the reinvigoration part is up to you.

2015 AAPM President

How the Sessions are Defined
