Synopsis:

Training in the field of radiological physics in nuclear medicine organized together with clinical partners. Overview of the duties, activities and responsibilities of a radiological physicist. Obtaining a basic idea of the activities and responsibilities of the radiological physicist and technicist. Practical (dosimetric and/or other) routine tasks under the supervision of an experienced radiological physicist. Training examples: spatial and energy resolution of the gammacamera, intrinsic spacial linearity of the gammacamera, dead time of the gammacamera, uniformity of the gammacamera, etc.
