William is a qualified medical physicist specialising in radiation safety for radiation facilities across Australia.
William holds an extensive range of experience in all aspects of radiation and focuses exclusively on ensuring that all radiation practices comply with the relevant radiation laws, regulations and standards.
William is accredited and qualified in Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia, Western Australia, Tasmania, Australian Capital Territory and the Northern Territory to provide radiation safety and protection advice and to certify radiation apparatus and premises to the relevant safety standards.
William is also a qualified Radiation Safety Officer across Australia and a full member of the Australasia College of Physical Scientists and Engineers in Medicine (ACPSEM), the Australasian Radiation Protection Society (ARPS) and the Australian Dental Industry Association (ADIA).
William served as the Vice President of the ADIA for Queensland from 2018 to 2020. William is well respected in the radiation industry and has sat as a board member with the Queensland Radiation Health to review the state's radiation safety standards.
Jackie is a medical physicist with many years of experience in radiation compliance and safety.
Jackie completed her Masters project titled: Feasibility study of the use of an Electronic Portable Imaging Devices (EPID) Dosimetry Calibration Compensator. The project was to develop and verify a mean to maintain a correction in pixel variation without correcting beam profile in electronic portal imaging device with Monte-Carlo simulation using EGSnrc and DOSEXYZnrg.
As a medical physicist, Jackie continues to develop her experience in radiation protection, dose optimisation and radiation therapy – treatment and pre-treatment dose verification.
Ceren is an experienced medical physicist and is particularly interested in the diverseness of the profession. She has a keen mind towards all aspects of physics and applies her knowledge to healthcare.
Ceren completed her Masters in medical physics project on the development and validation of an optical simulation of tumour movement monitoring during radiotherapy. The research project specifically addressed the issue of image guide radiation therapy: particularly associated with monitoring of tumour movement during actual delivery of external beam radiation therapy (intra fraction). It also considered the application of novel quantitative real-time ultrasound imaging, the specific aim being to dynamically monitor tumour movement during actual external beam radiotherapy delivery using a robotically-controlled ultrasound system.
Daniel is a medical physicist with a keen interest in diagnostic and therapeutic nuclear medicine imaging. He has a strong working knowledge of radiation safety compliance program to ensure public safety.
Daniel completed his Masters research on Monte Carlo simulation to Relative Biological Effectiveness (RBE) weighted dose for 50 kV therapy.
Sypnosis – RBE of low energy x-rays have been found to have a higher RBE than x-rays in the megavoltage range. The research project investigated the relative biological effectiveness of a 50 kVp beam used for superficial and intraoperative therapy. It was found by a combination of physical measurements and Monte Carlo simulations that the 50 kVp beam produced has an RBE greater than unity relative to a Co-60 beam.
Esther graduated with a Bachelor of Medical Radiation Physics and a Masters of Philosophy in Medical Radiation Physics from the University of Wollongong, NSW.
Esther’s thesis considers the Impact of 4DCT Dataset Representation on Radiotherapy Dose Calculations. It focused on how using different methods of reconstructing 4DCT datasets affected treatment planning and dose calculations for a moving tumour within the body. eg: lung tumours.
As a medical physicist, she is particularly interested in the innovative techniques used in cancer treatment that require little or no invasive surgical procedures to treat cancers such as Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT), which is a method of using medical imaging techniques to locate and target cancers with highly precise radiation treatment.
Lauren is a trainee medical physicist with Sieverts Radiation Consultancy. She is assisting with radiation safety legislative requirements and compliance testing in Queensland.
Lauren is currently completing her dual degree, with plans to progress into this field upon graduation in 2022.
