NEAAPM meetings are an opportunity for professionals in medical physics to keep up to date on subjects relevant to the field and interact with colleagues from around the New England area. The meeting is intended for physicists, dosimetrists, therapists and others with an interest in medical physics. It is sponsored by the New England chapter of the AAPM. This meeting has applied to CAMPEP for approval of 2.66 MPCEC hours.

The educational goals are to
1) Review and discuss surface imaging in radiation therapy
2) Review and discuss use of novel biomaterials in radiation therapy
3) Review and discuss advances in CT colonography
4) Review and discuss stem cell response to radiation therapy
5) Review and discuss MRI biomarkers
