AAPM is a scientific and professional organization, founded in 1958, composed of more than 8000 scientists whose clinical practice is dedicated to ensuring accuracy, safety and quality in the use of radiation in medical procedures such as medical imaging and radiation therapy. We are generally known as medical physicists and are uniquely positioned across medical specialties due to our responsibility to connect the physician to the patient through the use of radiation producing technology in both diagnosing and treating people. The responsibility of the medical physicist is to assure that the radiation prescribed in imaging and radiation therapy is delivered accurately and safely.
One of the primary goals of AAPM is the identification and implementation of improvements in patient safety for the medical use of radiation in imaging and radiation therapy.

Stephen Hawking died March 14, 2018. He was one of the giants on physics, not only in our age but of all times. While not a medical physicist, as physicists of any specialty, we mourn the loss of a creative and visionary thinker. --Bruce Thomadsen
"Not only does God play dice, but... he sometimes throws them where they cannot be seen." --Stephen Hawking
