Course content

The Medical Physics Group is developing methods of studying physiological processes and drug delivery in man. These include radiolabelled conjugates and molecular imaging probes to target therapies in a range of conditions including bladder cancer. In particular, we are developing new methods for assessing gastrointestinal transit; for example, in the investigation of chronic constipation in children and tablet swallowing in the elderly.
