Paper Abstract

Six Centers for Radiological Physics (CRP) have been funded by the Division of Cancer Control and Rehabilitation (DCCR) of the National Cancer Institute (NCI), A Coordination Program, managed by the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) has also been funded by DCCR with the objective of ensuring national uniformity in the services provided by the CRP's. The possible role of the CRP's in the physics of diagnostic radiology must exclude research and must exclude the provision of primary physics services. There is a need in the physics of diagnostic radiology for the integration of the knowledge obtained from research and from field measurements, for a repository of this integrated information, and for a mechanism to disseminate this information to the radiological physics community. The CRP's could meet these needs very well. The provision of laboratory back-up for the development of national standards in the field of diagnostic radiology is a second possible role of the CRP's.
