This paper describes an activity designed for a site of special interest in which clues to its history are gathered as visitors explore the site before interacting with two displays which reveal details of key past events. We investigate a design approach in which electronically tagged paper is used both to weave the visit together and configure the(More)
Development of computer-based medical inference systems is always confronted with some difficulties. In this paper, difficulties of designing an inference system for the diagnosis of arthritic diseases are described, including variations of disease manifestations under various situations and conditions. Furthermore, the need for a huge knowledge base would(More)
AFOMP recognizes that clinical medical physicists should demonstrate that they are competent to practice their profession by obtaining appropriate education, training and supervised experience in the specialties of medical physics in which they practice, as well as having a basic knowledge of other specialties. To help its member countries to achieve this,(More)
The history of medical physics in Asia-Oceania goes back to the late nineteenth century when X-ray imaging was introduced, although medical physicists were not appointed until much later. Medical physics developed very quickly in some countries, but in others the socio-economic situation as such prevented it being established for many years. In others, the(More)
