Medical physics

Our medical physics department offers a range of services for patients. You can find out about some of the specialised patient assessments we carry out below:

Our nuclear medicine (imaging physics) group are part of the clinical team that safely deliver molecular radiotherapy (MRT) using unsealed radioactive sources for a range of treatments.

Our team includes clinical scientists, clinical engineers, clinical technologists, radiographers, dosimetrists, medical, nursing and administrative staff. 

Scientific services

As well as our colleagues at the Trust and the University of Southampton, we work with customers throughout the South East region and beyond. Find out more about what we do, working with us, and contact details for our teams here.

Research

Members of our department publish and present research at national and international meetings. We have excellent links with the faculties of medicine, health and biological sciences, and science and engineering at the University of Southampton, and work on many projects together. We also sponsor several members of staff for part-time postgraduate research. Our department has academic status within the University, with joint honorary appointments available to members of staff.

Education and training

We provide education and training for medical physicists and clinical technologists. Members of our department are also involved in teaching courses including laser safety, physics for radiologists, transcranial Doppler ultrasound and (in conjunction with the University of Southampton) teaching for undergraduate medical physics students.
