Python for Medical Physicists #1
Python is a programming language that is popular among scientists, including medical physicists. The radiation oncology medical physics group at the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital have started a series of tutorials on the Python language. These will serve as an introduction to Python and will eventually explore the implementation of algorithms relevant to Medical Physics.
The slides for the first tutorial are available here. These slides cover:
- the installation of Anaconda,
- the interactive use of the Python interpreter, and Spyder environment,
- the basics of programming,
- Python syntax,
- data structures and flow control,
- and documentation.
