Year 12 Trip to Christie Hospital

Several Year 12 Physics students enjoyed a trip to the Medical Physics Open Evening held at the Christie Hospital, Manchester. They were shown how a CT scanner and a radiotherapy treatment apparatus worked and participated in a seminar on the advances in treating certain cancers using proton beam therapy, for which the first centre in the UK is being built at the Christie. There was a very interesting lecture by Dr Alan McWilliam on using imaging technology, particularly MRI, to improve radiotherapy, before finally attending a practical session on extracting DNA from strawberries.
