Departmental Colloquium


The Contributions of Physics to Medicine:

L. John Schreiner
Kingston Regional Cancer Centre and Queen's University

Time
 
Wed. March 24, 2004     1:30 PM     Stirling A

Abstract
 
The 2003 Nobel Prize in Medicine to Paul Lauterbur and Peter Mansfield highlighted again the great contribution of physics to medicine over the last 109 years. In this talk we will consider these contributions by reviewing the recognition from the Nobel committee over the years. Specific attention will be given to medical imaging, and to the history of the development of CT and MRI. This consideration may help explain why some physicists were honoured last year, while others took out advertisements in the New York papers to lament injustices.

Refreshments will be available after the talk.
