Recognition for Women in Medical Physics Publication Issued by IOMP

A special issue of Medical Physics World dedicated to women in medical physics has been officially released on the International Organization for Medical Physics (IOMP) website in advance of the upcoming European Congress of Radiology (Vienna, Austria, 1–5 March 2017) and International Women's Day (Wednesday, 8 March 2017).

On the cover of the 28-page edition is a photo of Marie Curie with her quote:

"We must believe that we are gifted for something, and that this thing, at whatever cost, must be attained."  (Marie Sklodowska Curie, 1867–1934)

The IOMP hopes this issue will contribute to the popularization of the medical physics profession and to attracting more women to the field of medical physics.
