Overview

Medical Physics MSc programme offered at University of Peradeniya is an ever-expanding field as a separate discipline. During the past two decades medical physics has undergone a tremendous evolution, progressing from a branch of science on the fringes of physics into an important mainstream discipline that can now be placed on equal footing with other more traditional branches of physics. Applications of physics in medicine cover a wide range. The four important sub-specialties in medical physics are related to: 1/ Diagnostic imaging with x rays (diagnostic radiology physics) 2/ Diagnostic imaging with radio-nuclides (nuclear medicine physics) 3/ Treatment of cancer with ionizing radiation (radiation oncology physics) 4/ Study of radiation hazards and radiation protection (health physics).
