Upstate New York chapter of AAPM (UNYAPM) held its semi-annual meeting on Jan 28, 2017 at the Twig Auditorium, Rochester General Hospital, Rochester, NY. The UNYAPM comprises members from all across the upstate New York region, from Buffalo to Albany. The first part of the meeting included scientific presentations by graduate students from Roswell Park Cancer Institute and the Toshiba Stroke and Vascular Research Center in Buffalo, and speakers from the University of Rochester.
The second part of the meeting started with an invited presentation by Bob Pizzutiello. Mr. Pizzutiello entertained us with his talk on "A different approach to communicating benefit and risk from low dose radiation" and proposed a method to effectively communicate "patient dose" with patients and colleagues. The highlight of the meeting was the presentation of the chapter's Lifetime Achievement Award in Medical Physics honoring Stephen Rudin, PhD for his outstanding contributions and achievements in Medical Physics throughout his distinguished career. As part of the award ceremony, Dr. Rudin presented a keynote lecture entitled "A Medical Physicist's Perspective on Medical Imaging and Image Guided Endovascular Interventions," covering aspects of his early scientific career and some of his current research on endovascular interventional imaging.
