Dear Reader,


EFOMP is delighted to announce the publication of the Spring 2021 issue of its quarterly newsletter, European Medical Physics News!


The theme of this issue of EMP News is Medical Physics Research in Europe, and the newsletter contains eight articles on this topic. These include reports of research on topics as diverse as CT and PET technology, particle therapy and fluid mechanics. Also included are articles on the activities of EFOMP’s Projects and Scientific committees, an overview of EURAMED and a guide to applying for funding from ERC. 


The Spring newsletter contains a number of regular features, including a medical physics book review, and overviews of recent papers published in Physica Medica, by the journal’s newly-appointed Editor-in-Chief, Iuliana Toma-Dasu and Deputy Editor, Claudio Fiorino. Our popular Medical Physicists’ Hobbies section contains an article about wooden photo album design by a Serbian medical physicist and one about singing from a Maltese colleague. This issue contains highly informative articles from seven EFOMP Company Members.


Last but certainly not least, in this issue we include the results of the 6th EFOMP Photo Contest, the theme of which was “The Sky at Night”. We are sure you will agree that the winning pictures are truly stellar examples of Medical Physicists’ creative abilities! 


We hope you will enjoy reading this issue of European Medical Physics News! Please do feel free to pass on the link or the pdf to friends, colleagues and students who you think might be interested.



David Lurie and the Editorial Team (pubcommittee@efomp.org), March 2021.
