Hospitals & Services
Medical Physics and Bioengineering provides scientific and technical services for safe, effective, and innovative patient care. These services vary from as simple as replacing a specialist battery in a piece of equipment, to as complex as commissioning a new radiation therapy machine. Our patient services range from as close to the patient as administration of radioiodine for thyroid cancer, through to computer simulation of patients.
Medical Physics and Bioengineering is based at Christchurch Hospital. We have three groups on the hospital campus: Radiation Oncology Physics in the Oncology Building, Diagnostic Physics on the 2nd Floor of the Clinical Services Block, and Bioengineering on the Lower Ground Floor of the Riverside Block. Additionally, we provide neurosciences and neurotechnology services as part of the NZ Brain Research Institute just off campus.
