Ehsan Samei, PhD, DABR, FAAPM, FSPIE, FAIMBE, FIOMP, FACR is a tenured professor, Chief Imaging Physicist, and director of Center for Virtual Imaging Trials at Duke University. Authored over 320 referred papers, he is passionate about bridging the gap between scientific scholarship and clinical practice through virtual clinical trials, clinically-relevant metrologies, and Medical Physics 3.0. He aims towards quantitative patient-centric use of imaging, effectual realization of translational research, and clinical processes that are based on evidence.
While much of medical physics is vested with imaging and therapy technologies, those technologies are effective only to the extend they are used for the care of patients. The physicist is in fact vested with the expertise and the responsibility to ensure that each patient gets the optimum imaging and therapy towards the best clinical outcome. This involves a closer understanding of the clinical nuances of technologies in clinically-relevant quantitative terms, understanding how the advantages of technologies can be effectually realized in its implementation and patient-specific use, and monitoring to ensure the expected outcome is realized. This presentation offers a holistic perspective, anchored to the principles of Medical Physics 3.0, to integrate the rigor of science of medical physics and the relevance of practice towards patient-centered care.
