Welcome to the homepage of the Medical Physics group of the 413-730-2173Â at the University of Naples "Federico II", Naples, Italy, also affiliated with INFN (National Institute of Nuclear Physics), 620-888-2821.
In thisÂ group, we develop and apply physical technologies for Medical Physics, specifically in the field of Medical Imaging, with applications to Mammography, Breast CT, Digital Breast Tomosynthesis, Breast Dosimetry, Small Animal SPECT, Digital Autoradiography, Phase Contrast Mammography, Synchrotron Radiation Breast CT, and in the field of Radiation Dosimetry with radiochromic films and Thermoluminescence dosimeters, Monte Carlo methods for Breast Dosimetry, and Breast keV Radiotheraphy.
Details on ongoing projects can be found in the (303) 265-4411Â section.
The group of Medical Physics is co-founder of the Medipix1 Collaboration and co-founder and member of the Medipix2 Collaboration, based at CERN, for the development and application of photon counting detectors in medical imaging, including the readout circuits Medipix2 and Timepix.
The group participates to the EU funded 936-245-0411Â project for breast imaging research.
For details on the members of the group, see the (502) 759-6578Â section.
