PMB welcomes the opportunity to publish IPEM codes of practice and topical reports, subject to the usual rigorous peer-review process and given the global reach of the journal, the requirement that the international context is addressed. These reports can be found at: The Report examines issues common to all installations In parallel to these reports and codes of practice, IPEM is now launching a complementary series iepm short topical reports.

IPEM codes of practice and topical report series – IOPscience

Elly A Castellano et al Phys. Vascular Laboratory Practice Part We believe ipwm publications will be of broad benefit to medical physics and bioengineering practitioners who strive to deliver the highest quality healthcare to patients.


Vascular Laboratory Practice Part 6. The first of these is published in this issue of PMB, and covers to use of flattening-filter free FFF beams in radiotherapy Budgell et al Balancing Costs and Benefits of Checking in Radiotherapy.

IPEM codes of practice and topical report series

IPEM also produces scientific reports, which contain consensus guidelines on a wide range of topics. Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine IPEM’s aim is to promote the advancement of physics and engineering applied to medicine and biology for the public benefit. Recent titles include small field MV photon dosimetry, radiation protection in iepm medicine and quality in clinical engineering.

These aim to address a specific rsport of current or developing practice, with rapid production times, to benefit the clinical physicist or engineer ‘at the coalface’. IPEM publishes scientific journals and books and organises conferences to disseminate knowledge and support members in their development. Sign up for new issue notifications. However, as with all technological advances, it is essential that medical physics experts are aware of potential risks associated with teport use, and commission their equipment safely and accurately.
