Duke University Medical Physics
Our Medical Physics Graduate Program offers both M.S. and PhD degrees, and is an interdisciplinary program sponsored by five departments: radiology, radiation oncology, physics, biomedical engineering, and medical health physics. We offer four academic tracks: diagnostic imaging physics, radiation oncology physics, nuclear medicine physics, and health physics. We have a large faculty involved in medical physics research and clinical service, with a number of our colleagues being internationally recognized experts in their fields of scholarship. Areas of faculty expertise include magnetic resonance angiography, magnetic resonance microscopy, advanced digital imaging algorithms, detector and display characterization, computer-aided diagnosis, ultrasound, monoclonal antibody imaging and therapy, hyperthermia coupled with radiation therapy, image guided radiation therapy, intensity modulated radiation therapy, tumor and normal tissue radiation response modeling, optical-CT dosimetry and imaging, radiosurgery, high dose-rate brachytherapy, treatment optimization, SPECT and PET imaging, neutron-stimulated imaging, and dosimetry.
