Physics Methods in Archaeometry

The role of exact sciences in connection with cultural heritage now is well established and a new scientific branch has been generated: Archaeometry. Literally, Archaeometry means measurement on ancient objects. It is a multidisciplinary field of investigations where the rigorous methods of exact sciences give a fundamental contribution to solving the problems associated with conservation and restoration, as well as to the study itself of the cultural heritage. Archaeometry, as a scientific research field, involves interdisciplinary groups formed by scholars of the humanistic area together with scientists: physicists, chemists, mathematicians, biologists, engineers, etc. The primary justification for the need of involving exact sciences in the field which, in the past, traditionally has been exclusive of Art Historians must no doubt be found in the conservation and restoration activities. The second argument which, in the public opinion, justifies the involvement of science with the world of Art is the confidence that scientific methods are infallible in unmasking forgeries. But in our opinion the awareness of the central role of scientific methods as a support for philological and historical investigations is still very little diffuse or, at least, finds it hard to become widespread. Perhaps also because of our mentality, Physics, compared to chemistry, is more apt to find applications in a context free from authentication or conservation implications.
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, September 14-20, 1997
This volume contains papers presented at the Congress on the following topics: physics of biological systems; study and measurement of physiological parameters; dosimetry and clinical dosimetry; medical imaging; biomedical instrumentation and quality assurance; optics and laser applications in biology and medicine; physics methodologies in environmental science.
Computers have had and will continue to have a tremendous impact on professional activity in almost all areas. This applies to radiological medicine and in particular to radiation therapy. This book compiles the most recent developments and results of the application of computers and computer science as presented at the XIIIth International Conference on the Use of Computers in Radiation Therapy in Heidelberg, Germany. The text of both oral presentations and posters is included. The book is intended for computer sientists, medical physicists, engineers and physicians in the field of radiation therapy and provides a comprehensive survey of the entire field.
This book has been created for the 50th anniversary of the International Federation for Medical and Biological Enineering and Computing IFMBE. The IFMBE is primarily a professional organization of national and transnational societies representing interests in medical and biological engineering. In six parts, this book presents an overview on the federation, its activities and the characters who shaped IFMBE. In the last part, all member societies give a short presentation.
