Medical Physics Subcommittee

Benedict 02

Chair: Ying Xiao, PhD  
Co-Chairs: Jason Sohn, PhD, Stanley Benedict, PhD

Administrative: Elizabeth O’Meara and Theresa A. Powell

The NRG Medical Physics Subcommittee supports the NRG and NCTN activities by providing physics expertise in developing protocols, establishing QA processes, updating the status of advanced technologies, and developing safe implementation guidelines.

Specific Activities and Goals

  • Contribute to specific disease site committees activities.
  • Interface with NRG subgroups, core QA centers, and the NCI.
  • Provide physics expertise for protocols
    • Develop physics and dosimetry templates for protocols
    • Specify technology implementation and QA procedure
    • Interface with AAPM task groups for new technology implementation guidelines
    • Review medical physics and dosimetry of new protocols
    • Review physics related manuscripts for NRG publication committee
  • Interact with vendors to provide clinical trial information and guidance.
  • Develop educational program to support clinical medical physicists for protocol credentialing
