GUWAHATI, June 8 � The Dr B Borooah Cancer Institute (BBCI), Guwahati, in collaboration with the Department of Physics, Gauhati University, will introduce a three-year MSc course in Radiological Physics.�The initiative is in response to shortage of trained personnel in the region.

There is currently a shortfall of about 500 medical physicists across the country. Currently, the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, Mumbai, conducts one-year post-MSc Diploma course in Radiological Physics.

The incidence of cancer, as per Population Based Cancer Registry of Indian Council of Medical Research, is highest in the North-Eastern region.

Many cancer centres are coming up in the region, which will create job avenues for the students of the North-East.

Radiological physicists or medical physicists are concerned with clinical service and consultation, research and development and teaching in consultation with the primary care physicians.�

Besides, they are involved in planning of radiation treatment using either external beam or internal radioactive sources as well as measuring radiation output from radiation sources employed in cancer therapy.�

An official release issued here stated that the academic session of the new course will start from July 16.

Further information can be accessed from the websites www.bbcionline.org and www.gauhati.ac.in.
