When Professor J.E. Roberts was first employed at the then Cancer Hospital (Free) in 1932, the words medical and physics were rarely joined together. Meandering in Medical Physics presents an account of Professor Roberts's experiences in professional life, both in the United Kingdom and overseas. It documents the early history of medical physics and provides insight into the very basic equipment and working conditions well known to hospital physicists not long ago. Enhanced by archived photographs from the British Institute of Radiology, the book will entertain, enlighten, and educate.
