Medical physics provides scientific, technical and regulatory support to a wide range of clinical and support services within Guy's and St Thomas'.
The department also supplies specialised services to other hospitals and clinics, both across London and nationally. It works closely with the Division of Imaging Sciences and Biomedical Engineering at the King’s College London School of Medicine.
The main services provided to external bodies include:
- ionising and non-ionising radiation safety
- equipment repair and management
- calibration and medical device development
- nuclear medicine physics
- magnetic resonance physics and safety advice (for more information, download Scope for the provision of MR physics support (PDF 160Kb)).
Calibration services include: x-ray systems, radiation monitors, UV radiation meters and cabins, and pressure measuring systems. Services are quality accredited to either ISO 9001, ISO 13485 or ISO 17025.
Scientific, technical and regulatory services are backed up by research and development activity. Medical devices are designed and constructed in well equipped workshops that can provide CE marking.
