Radiation Physics and Biomedical Engineering

The research fields in radiation physics and biomedical engineering at Umeå University covers mainly the use of radiation in medical applications, but also the other uses of medical technology and informatics in health care.

This type of researchy is carried out mostly by radiation physicists or medical engineers. Our research is mainly focused on clinical applications and is in close co-operation with Swedish or foreign companies. We also conduct radiation protection research in collaboration with FOI, the Swedish Defense Research Institute, and other radiation protection organisations.

In the field of radiation is also the area of non-ionising radiation included. We work with electromagnetic fields in our environment, MR cameras, surgical diathermy, cell phones, and its biological effects.
