Medical physics is a branch of applied physics concerning the application of physics to medicine. It generally concerns physics as applied to medical imaging and radiotherapy, although a medical physicist may also work in many other areas of healthcare.

Medical physics is the application of physics to problems involving human health. Important developments in this field hold promise for improvements in the diagnosis and understanding of disease, and in the application of high technology to patient care. Examples include the employment of high energy photon and electron beams for cancer therapy, the invention of the computed tomographic (CT) scanner, and more recently, the development of the magnetic resonance (MR) imager. Currently, there is a shortage of physicists who can bridge the gap between the traditional pure and applied sciences and clinical application.
Medical Physics is an applied branch of physics devoted to the application of concepts and methods from physics to the diagnosis and treatment of human disease.  Medical physicists are concerned with three primary areas of activity: clinical service and consultation, research and development, and teaching.  Clinically, medical physicists are called upon to contribute scientific advice and resources to solve physical problems arising in radiological medical physics.  Medical physics research typically involves the development of new instrumentation and technology, the development of new medical diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, and tests using existing technologies.
M.Sc medical physics is available in leading colleges Anna University Chennai,, P.S.G. College of technology coimbatore etc.
