The AAPM Annual Meeting & Exhibition held in late July or early August draws about 4,000 participants to the world’s largest program of scientific, educational and professional presentations plus technical exhibits and social programs that targets the medical physics community specifically.
This year's program will be held in the Anaheim Convention Center. The education program and professional program will offer a significant opportunity to gain practical knowledge on emerging technical and professional issues. The scientific program will feature the latest research in the physics of medical imaging and radiation therapy, including a major focus on the increasing integration on advanced imaging technologies in the guidance of medical therapeutics. This year, the scientific program will also offer a special three-day track on ultrasound.
Vendors with an interest in medical physics or related equipment, products, and services are invited to participate at the Annual AAPM Meeting and Technical Exhibits.
Join us for the premier education event for the Medical Physics community!
The 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 the AAPM is the identification and implementation of improvements in patient safety for the medical use of radiation in imaging and radiation therapy.
