Working to improve patient outcomes
NPL has worked for decades with the clinical communities across a range of disciplines to support the delivery of required diagnostic and therapeutic outcomes. Over time NPL has become more actively engaged with academics, medical physicists, clinicians and equipment manufacturers, providing a wider range of direct support. This collaborative approach has accelerated the implementation and spread of best practice in new, more advanced diagnostic and treatment modalities.
Our new Metrology for Medical Physics Centre (MEMPHYS) will build on existing experience to support rapid acceleration of the development and implementation of innovative diagnostic and therapeutic technologies into clinical practice. It will improve early diagnosis and treatment of conditions such as cancer, dementia and heart disease.
MEMPHYS will work closely with the NHS, academia, industry and funding bodies and will act as a launch platform, providing multidisciplinary consultancy and advice, commissioning and validation methodologies, quality assurance protocols, verification techniques and advice on best practice and standards, protocols and training.
