As a continuation of the series of annual French-Ukrainian instrumentation workshops and in the framework of the international laboratory LIA IDEATE, V.N. Karazin Kharkiv National University will host the 2nd French-CERN-Ukrainian Workshop on Medical Physics and Imaging on April 20-21 2017. Cross-fertilization between particle physics detectors and imaging tools is constantly bringing benefits to the medical field: these are not only related to diagnosis, but also to therapy, as faster and more sensitive detectors can allow for in-vivo monitoring during irradiation. The invited lectures will cover state-of-the-art radiation detector technologies and advanced imaging systems for biological and medical research. This school is addressed to the wide audience and provides a discussion platform of new developments in related instrumentation and techniques, treatment using particle therapy and radio-guided operative cancer surgery, quantitative models of tumors. The CERN expertise in medical physics research will be also presented.
