The use of ionizing radiation and radionuclide in medicine is an effective method in diagnosing many diseases in earlier stages and treating cancers effectively. It does not only allow many patients to fight against the disease, but also gives them significant chance of recovery. While the medical benefits are unquestionable, there has been growing evidence of unintended and unnecessary use of radiation in medicine, creating the need for radiation protection principles. The department of Nuclear Physics organize one day workshop on Radiation Protection in Medicine on 13th September 2017.
Workshop Coordinator: Dr. J.Jeyasugiththan, 0775953601
This workshop would be very beneficial especially for anyone who is interested OR planning to work in the field of applied nuclear science in various different fields such as agriculture, food industry, medicine and nuclear power.
This was the open workshop for radiation workers, teachers and researchers. Provided basic knowledge of radiation and medical applications. Practical sessions to give the participant to practice radiation detection equipments and protection methods.
Participated in a three days school exhibition by organizing a stall. The stall included radiation detective equipments, demonstrations on radiation protection methods, posters and power point presentations on theory and applications of nuclear science and demonstrations on industrial radiography
