From particle physics: To medtech and biomedical research
Physics phenomena underpin many techniques and technologies that are used for both diagnosis and treatment of a variety of diseases. This is the case for radiotherapy, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), and Positron Emission Tomography (PET) that are based on our knowledge, respectively, of how particles interact with matter, of how atomic nuclei behave in oscillating magnetic fields, and of how positron decay.
