Earlier this year, Physics in Medicine & Biology (PMB) celebrated its 60th anniversary by hosting a symposium at Imperial College London, as part of ICCR 2016.

The 60th Anniversary Symposium included talks on the evolution of medical physics over the last 60 years, developments in diagnostic imaging, image guidance and adaptive radiotherapy, and how the field may progress in the future. The speakers also emphasized how PMB has contributed to medical physics research over the last six decades.

In this video, we bring you a selection of footage from the day, including the presentations and the follow-on Q&A session held after the symposium at the nearby Hereford Arms pub. Editor-in-Chief Simon Cherry talks about the journal and the motivation for holding this symposium. "It's one of the longest living journals in our field so we wanted to celebrate some of the advances in the field but also take a historical perspective and look back on some of the things that have happened," he explained.

We also hear from several of the day's speakers, and find out what some of the attendees - including PMB's previous Editor-in-Chief Steve Webb - thought of the event.

If this video sparks your interest, why not check out our series of webinars showcasing presentations from the symposium. Take a look at the PMB webinars page to find out how to get involved.

• Alongside the symposium, the journal publishers also created a 60th anniversary collection, incorporating 25 papers published in PMB since its inception in 1956 that the board members felt had a particularly important impact on the development of the field. A PDF version of the collection is available for download here. The full versions of all 25 papers can also be accessed online.
