2014 Fall Program Schedule

Our Meet & Greet and poster session event will take place on Friday, November 14, 2014 from 6:00-10:00 pm at The Commons. A reception will be provided including a cocktail bar and light Hors d'oeuvres. Attendees, spouses, and exhibitors are all welcome at the reception, as it is primarily a professional-social event. Why not bring the kids?? We have the lobby reserved where there is fun for both adults and kids!

The Symposium will take place on Saturday, November 15, 2014 from 8:00 AM-4:00 PM, at the Clarion Hotel and Conference Center. We encourage all medical physicists, physicians, dosimetrists, technologists, and therapists in our region to attend.

Keynote Speaker
Bruce Thomadsen, Ph.D.
University of Wisconsin
Dr Bruce Thomadsen


Our theme for this symposium centers around Quality Improvement and Safety and along those lines, our keynote speaker for this meeting is Bruce Thomadsen, Ph. D., University of Wisconsin. Dr. Thomadsen will be discussing his efforts in improving quality and safety through national radiotherapy incident reporting systems. Janelle Molloy, Ph.D., University of Kentucky will present on implementing an incident reporting and quality improvement process for a clinical University Hospital.

Our goal this year is to balance pertinent diagnostic talks and to that end, Priscilla Butler, M.S., American College of Radiology will introduce us to the new ACR digital mammography QC manual and Donovan Bakalyar, Ph.D., Henry Ford Hospital will give us an update on the happenings of Task Group 200 and CT dosimetry for the modern era.

We ask that attendees register for these events in advance by going to our Chapter website and paying through the PayPal option so that we can produce a name badge for you as well as monitor attendance. It will, however, be possible to register on-site. The Saturday symposium will include a breakfast, snacks, and lunch. All attendees must pay a one-time registration fee, which covers both Meet & Greet and Symposium. The fee schedule is as follows:
