Medical Physics at MCC

Medical Physics is a medical specialty that applies physics principles to ensure that diagnostic and therapeutic procedures prescribed by physicians are delivered accurately and safely. In order to practice clinically, Medical Physicists are required to pass a rigorous set of examinations administered by the American Board of Radiology after completing a two-year clinical residency. Radiation Oncology, Diagnostic Radiology and Nuclear Medicine are highly technologically advanced medical fields and thus require a highly skilled professional and technical team to ensure optimal patient care. The Medical Physics Group provides clinical physics and dosimetry services at the main Moffitt Cancer Center (MCC) campus, the Moffitt International Plaza (MIP) and the Moffitt Radiotherapy Clinic at the Villages. It currently consists of 15 physicists and 10 dosimetrists. Program faculty from MCC also includes non-physicists from various clinical and research departments. A comprehensive set of state-of-the-art technologies are supported including three-dimensional conformal radiation therapy (3D-CRT), intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT), volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT), stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT), tumor motion management (4D imaging, planning and delivery; respiratory gating), total-body irradiation (TBI), total skin electron therapy (TSET), high-dose rate (HDR) brachytherapy, prostate seed implants, and intraoperative radiotherapy for breast cancer. The Department of Diagnostic Imaging provides opportunities in medical imaging (CT, MRI, PET, SPECT, etc.) and the Department of Cancer Imaging and Metabolism offers a comprehensive set of pre-clinical imaging technologies (microCT, microPET, microMR, etc.), including molecular imaging, and research lanoratories. In addition to clinical services, medical physicists are engaged in research and teaching activities.
