Items of Note

Important notices, upcoming deadlines, and events happening in the Medical Physics community.

  • Annual AAPM Professional Survey
    AAPM members residing in the U.S. and Canada - this notice is intended to inform you will receive an e-mail from the Professional Survey Subcommittee stating that the AIP Statistical Research Center is conducting this year’s survey for us as they have done for more than 2 decades. Their work for us has been consistently at the highest professional standards. If you have any concerns or comments, please contact Julius Dollison of the AIP Statistical Research Center. Their contact information is in the e-mail you will receive. Thank you in advance for participating in this important project.
  • AAPM Webinars
    • Episode #8 of the AAPM MP3.0 Webinar Series on Transformational Medical Physics
      Redefining Workflow in Radiation Oncology and the Role of the Clinical Physicist
      Radiation oncology is simultaneously becoming increasingly complex and more automated. This webinar explores the associated ramifications and opportunities of this progression for physicists to improve quality, efficiency, safety, and patient-centered care.

Corgi Phantom:
The Corgi Phantom is designed to evaluate cone beam CT systems. The modular phantom can be configured for different scan sizes, providing tests for multi-axis high resolution, sensitometry, cone beam artifacts, and uniformity. Additionally, the phantom includes holes for measuring dose.

Liver Phantom:
The Liver Phantom combines the advantages of objective test objects and anthropomorphic elements for evaluation of advanced iterative processing. The phantom includes low contrast test objects designed both for ROC tests along with conventional patterns, metal artifact inserts, and beads for MTF calculations.
