RPU R&D image


The Radiotherapy Physics unit is involved in the research and development of new and cutting-edge techniques in radiotherapy. There are several projects on-the-go in the department.

For example, work to introduce new and highly specialised technologies eg Volume Modulated Arc Therapy (VMAT) and 4 dimensional computed tomography (4DCT) is currently ongoing.

In collaboration with the Universities of Bristol and Swansea, a novel radiation detector device is being developed for real time monitoring of patient doses during treatment.

Staff participate in national and international scientific meetings to share knowledge and keep up to date with the latest developments in the field.

Involvement in clinical trials enables cutting edge treatment techniques to be adopted and optimised.

The department is involved in the creation and development of a scientific and administrative computing infrastructure and bespoke software solutions.
