Ohio, US, 19th December 2022, ZEXPRWIRE, David R. Roesener, a medical physicist currently working as a radiation physicist at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, was recently featured in Disrupt Magazine where he discussed four reasons why it is important to be a part of the fields of radiation oncology and medical physics.

As part of his article in Disrupt Magazine, David Roesener provides four reasons why it is important to be involved with radiation oncology and medical physics, as well as expounds on the role of a medical physicist and radiation oncologist. The first reason that Mr. Roesener mentions in his article is the importance of radiation oncology and medical physics in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer:
“Radiation Oncology and medical physics are critical medical fields that play an important role in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. Radiation therapy is used to kill or damage cancer cells, while medical physics focuses on the research, development, implementation, and optimization of medical devices and procedures. Both medical fields work hand-in-hand to ensure the most effective radiation treatments for a patient’s particular type of cancer. A medical physicist must understand how radiation interacts with human tissue in order to design safe, accurate treatments while minimizing any potential side effects or risks to healthy tissue. Medical physicists consult closely with radiation oncologists to coordinate treatments that will provide the most therapeutic benefit while reducing damage to healthy organs and tissues. In addition, medical physicists also perform dosimetry calculations to calculate radiation doses for each individual patient based on a variety of factors such as tumor size, shape and location.”
Another important aspect of medical physics that David R. Roesener highlights is the role it plays in research into new technologies for more effective cancer treatments. As Mr. Roesener explains, “By understanding the physical properties of radiation and other medical imaging modalities such as ultrasound, computerized tomography (CT) scans, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), positron emission tomography (PET) scans and radioactive tracers, medical physicists can develop new techniques that enable clinicians to diagnose conditions more accurately than ever before and provide better outcomes for patients.”
Mr. Roesener also describes how medical physics is important to quality assurance by ensuring that equipment used in radiotherapy is properly calibrated and functioning correctly prior to use on patients. The fourth reason that he cites is that medical physicists often help lead efforts towards improving patient care through their involvement in clinical trials and researching new methods for diagnosing and treating various forms of cancer.
To end the article, David R. Roesener summarizes his thoughts: “Overall it is clear why both fields are so important – they are essential components in providing accurate diagnoses and effective treatment options for those suffering from cancerous diseases today – whether it be via advancing existing technologies such as proton beam therapy, ensuring proper usage of equipment within facilities through compliance audits, or leading efforts towards improved patient care through clinical trials. It is this dedication from those working within radiation oncology & medical physics which continues helping many individuals facing health struggles today.”
