About PyMedPhys

PyMedPhys is a toolbox for Medical Physicists that we all have access to, and we will all have access to whatever it becomes in the future. It is inspired by our physics peers in astronomy and their Astropy Project.

PyMedPhys aims to become not just a library, but instead a Medical Physics open source monorepo where we can all store, review, use, and learn off of each other’s code. It is structured and glued together with Python, but certainly not limited to one programming language.

This package is available on PyPI (https://pypi.org/project/pymedphys/), GitHub (https://github.com/pymedphys/pymedphys), and conda-forge (https://anaconda.org/conda-forge/pymedphys). Documentation is at https://pymedphys.com.

We want you on this list. We want you, whether you are a clinical Medical Physicist, PhD or Masters student, researcher, or even just someone with an interest in Python to join our team. We want you if you have a desire to create and validate a toolbox we can all use to improve how we care for our patients.

The aim of PyMedPhys is that it will be developed by an open community of contributors. We use a shared copyright model that enables all contributors to maintain the copyright on their contributions. All code is licensed under the AGPLv3+ with additional terms from the Apache-2.0 license.
