  • Blumberg Lecture 11/01/2003
  • Description: Nine years ago Seth Blumberg was told that he had cancer. His exact diagnosis required the use of ultrasound, x-ray & radioisotope imaging. Part of his treatment consisted of controlled doses of high-energy radiation. All of these scans and procedures rely on physics. Thankfully, Seth is currently in full remission and this lecture will discuss how physics helped to save his life.
