John Cameron QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
However, one of my ambitions in 1958 when I entered the field was to establish a department of medical physics in our medical school.
Quotation of John Cameron
I am not unhappy that my contribution was not recognized. I am sure it helped my career.
Quotation of John Cameron
I am now almost certain that we need more radiation for better health.
Quotation of John Cameron
I am sure that I have been much more useful to society as a medical physicist.
Quotation of John Cameron
I don't display my plaques and honors. They are hidden behind a black curtain in my work room at home.
Quotation of John Cameron
I found collaborating with congenial doctors about problems that physicists could help solve was very satisfying. I also like educating anybody who would listen!
Quotation of John Cameron
I found I liked practical applications of physics that are of benefit to society rather than basic research in nuclear physics.
Quotation of John Cameron
I have devoted much time and energy to helping medical physics in developing countries.
Quotation of John Cameron
I have long been convinced that medical physicists (and biomedical engineers) have useful roles to play in many clinical and basic science departments of medical schools.
Quotation of John Cameron
I have the satisfaction of knowing I did something useful for society.
Quotation of John Cameron
I invented bone densitometry in the early 1960s. It was of little interest at first because there was no known treatment.
Quotation of John Cameron
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.
Quotation of John Cameron
I still hope to find a biological scientist to test some of the basic ideas of my model of imagination and creativity.
Quotation of John Cameron
I was the Chair of the first department of medical physics in a medical school in the U.S.
Quotation of John Cameron
I would gladly trade any honorary award for the chance to give a lecture to the ACR or RSNA.
Quotation of John Cameron
I would not encourage everyone to take up this profession. Not everyone is suited for any particular field.
Quotation of John Cameron
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.
Quotation of John Cameron
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.
Quotation of John Cameron
In some cases radiation reduces the incidence of cancer.
Quotation of John Cameron
It is likely that we need more radiation to improve our longevity.
Quotation of John Cameron
Many large hospitals have physics departments to do hospital work but not for training or research in medical physics.
Quotation of John Cameron
Many medical physicists take responsibility for radiation safety in their hospital.
Quotation of John Cameron
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.
Quotation of John Cameron
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.
Quotation of John Cameron
Medical physics is an applied area of physics.
Quotation of John Cameron
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.
Quotation of John Cameron
My main frustration is the fear of cancer from low dose radiation, even by radiologists.
Quotation of John Cameron
Nuclear physics is interesting but it is unlikely to help society.
Quotation of John Cameron
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.
Quotation of John Cameron
The profits and my salary from RMI were donated to the University to support medical physics research.
Quotation of John Cameron
There are now over 5,000 medical physicists in the U.S more than 50 times the number in 1958.
Quotation of John Cameron
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.
Quotation of John Cameron
We developed simple test tools to optimize imaging parameters. No company was interested in our idea.
Quotation of John Cameron
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.
Quotation of John Cameron
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.
