The Radiation Physics Department has a considerable research portfolio in imaging physics, radiotherapy and nuclear medicine
'Science for Patient Benefit' underpins all research and development activities in the Hull University Teaching Hospitals' Radiation Physics Department.
Our imaging section has a number of projects investigating the physics of image quality and patient dose optimisation. This work has led directly to the improvement of patient care in the fields of digital imaging for chest, abdomen, pelvis and spine radiography, CT (including cone beam CT and 4D CT) and breast screening. We have published most of our work in respected peer-reviewed scientific journals as well as proffered and invited presentations at national conferences.
Our radiotherapy section are currently involved in a number of projects looking at the implementation of new and novel treatment techniques, including participation in national and international clinical trials.
Our nuclear medicine section are leading projects investigating 4D PET clinical image quality and quantification, the use of PET/MRI fusion and Poisson sampling, and radioactive waste management.
Our department currently has a number of research interests in collaboration with the local university and other NHS centres.
