I am now almost certain that we need more radiation for better health  (John Cameron Quotes) It is likely that we need more radiation to improve our longevity  (John Cameron Quotes) There are now over 5,000 medical physicists in the U. S more than 50 times the number in 1958  (John Cameron Quotes) In 1970 I realized that there was negligible risk from x-rays but many radiographs had poor image quality so that the risk from a false negative was significant.  (John Cameron Quotes) Many Nobel Prizes are awaiting good research to understand and explain the many mysteries of our bodies, such as the basic mechanism of memory or imagination.  (John Cameron Quotes) The growth of technology is such that it is not possible today for a nuclear physicist to switch into medical physics without training. The field is now much more technical. More training is needed to do the job  (John Cameron Quotes) When I entered the field in July 1958 I believed what they told me about radiation risks. I spent much effort reducing the dose to patients in radiology  (John Cameron Quotes) Too many radiologists still believe there is a risk from a chest x - ray. Few radiologists can explain radiation to the patient in words the patient can understand  (John Cameron Quotes) My main frustration is the fear of cancer from low dose radiation, even by radiologists  (John Cameron Quotes) In 1970 I realized that there was negligible risk from x - rays but many radiographs had poor image quality so that the risk from a false negative was significant  (John Cameron Quotes) I started the nuclear medicine laboratory at UW Hospitals in 1959 and trained radiology residents in the field. It was 1965 before they found a trained MD (doctor) to take over my role  (John Cameron Quotes) I don’t display my plaques and honors. They are hidden behind a black curtain in my work room at home  (John Cameron Quotes) When I entered medical physics in 1958 there were fewer than 100 in the U. S. And I could see many opportunities to apply my knowledge of nuclear physics  (John Cameron Quotes) Many Nobel Prizes are awaiting good research to understand and explain the many mysteries of our bodies, such as the basic mechanism of memory or imagination  (John Cameron Quotes) I was the Chair of the first department of medical physics in a medical school in the U. S  (John Cameron Quotes) Most medical physicists work in the physics of radiation oncology making sure that the desired dose is given to the cancer and the dose to normal tissues are minimized  (John Cameron Quotes) Medical physicists work in cooperation with doctors. A few medical physicists devote their time to research and teaching. A few get involved with administrative duties  (John Cameron Quotes) I have devoted much time and energy to helping medical physics in developing countries  (John Cameron Quotes) I am sure that I have been much more useful to society as a medical physicist  (John Cameron Quotes) I was the Chair of the first department of medical physics in a medical school in the U.S  (John Cameron Quotes) Medical physics is an applied area of physics  (John Cameron Quotes) I am not unhappy that my contribution was not recognized. I am sure it helped my career  (John Cameron Quotes) We developed simple test tools to optimize imaging parameters. No company was interested in our idea  (John Cameron Quotes) If someone is interested in medicine and also in physics and they like working with people and communicate well with others, I would strongly encourage them  (John Cameron Quotes) I would not encourage everyone to take up this profession. Not everyone is suited for any particular field  (John Cameron Quotes) I found collaborating with congenial doctors about problems that physicists could help solve was very satisfying. I also like educating anybody who would listen!  (John Cameron Quotes)
