Webinars from the International Day of Medical Physics 2018 are now available.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the International Organization for Medical Physics (IOMP) joined with medical physicists around the world on 7 November 2018 to celebrate the 6th International Day of Medical Physics (IDMP). The theme for 2018 was "Medical Physics for Patient benefit".

The IAEA hosted a webinar in support of the event at its headquarters in Vienna (Austria) under the title of "The Journey of an Ionization Chamber". The BIPM was invited to take part in the webinar and Dr Cecilia Kessler from the BIPM Ionizing Radiation Department gave a presentation on "The ionization chamber in the Primary Standards Dosimetry Laboratory (PDSL): the role of the PDSL." A video of Dr Kessler's presentation can be viewed by clicking on the following link https://iaea.mediasite.com/Mediasite/Play/ef588d94fa2d4cca8ea0446adc5c35261d.
