Research Summary
Professor Hutton joined the Dept of Nuclear Medicine at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, Sydney in 1975 and headed the Physics group from 1981-1995. He played a central role in the establishment of the National PET Facility at RPA Hospital and in 1990 was attached to the MRC Cyclotron Unit at Hammersmith Hospital, London. He later held an appointment as Head of the Diagnostic Physics Group at Westmead Hospital, Sydney where his research interests included SPECT quantification, image reconstruction and multi-modality imaging problems. He also accepted a part-time Professorial appointment at the University of Wollongong. In addition he has acted as project manager for a major initiative in technologist education originally developed for use in the Asian region, but now also in use in Africa and Latin America (IAEA funded). He currently directs research in nuclear medicine physics which includes development of reconstruction algorithms, design and evaluation of novel tomographic systems and corrections for effects of motion and partial volume effects.
Teaching Summary
Professor Hutton is considered an expert on most aspects of medical physics applied in nuclear medicine and has acted as an invited speaker at many international meetings. He has pioneered a scheme for distance assisted training (DAT) of Nuclear Medicine Technologists under IAEA funding which has been adopted in many countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America with interest also in Eastern Europe. This work is based on developing experiential learning based on understanding of basic concepts.
