Medical Radiation Physics is an interdisciplinary subject, which is directed towards development and discovery of new knowledge for applications of radiation and radioactivity. Important fields of application are radiotherapy to treat cancer, radiation diagnostics using X-rays, computed tomography, nuclear medicine and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). We mainly work on developing new methods for diagnostic and new ways of radiation treatment. Our discipline includes research on radiation protection and environmental radiology, in which the protection of people and the environment from the harmful effects of radiation and radioactive substances is central. We also study measurement strategies for effects from radiation accidents or radioactive malevolent acts. The research is performed in collaboration with Skåne University Hospital and other partners.
