AAPM talk of Sebastian Meyer selected for a research update report on Physics Word


The PhD research of Sebastian Meyer, presented in a talk at the Annual Meeting of the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) in Nashville, USA, has been selected for a research update report on Physics Word.

This research, partly supported by the German Research Foundation (project HIGH-ART and MAP), is being pursued in an international collaborative effort, as reflected by the full list of contributors to the presented work entitled "Quantitative comparison of proton, helium and carbon ion computed tomography for ion therapy treatment planning" (Sebastian Meyer1, Florian Kamp2, Andrea Mairani3,4, Claus Belka2,5, David J. Carlson6, Chiara Gianoli1 and Katia Parodi1).
