Both the education and professional programs will offer an excellent 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.
AAPM 2018 will provide the perfect opportunity to showcase the highlights of our profession, requiring all of us to work together to bring into the clinic those exciting and significant developments being made by our researchers. Our Annual Meeting provides unique opportunities for you to share your scientific and clinical knowledge and skills. Ensure your professional development for the sake of our future in the field of Medical Physics by attending this year’s Annual Meeting. We look forward to seeing you for the Annual Meeting & Exhibition!
The American Association of Physicists in Medicine invites you to exhibit at the AAPM Annual Meeting & Exhibition. Join us for the premier education event for the Medical Physics community!
The AAPM Annual Meeting 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.
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.
