Ahmad Nobah, MSc, DABR

Founder, RadiationKnowledge

Mr. Ahmad Nobah got his MS degree in Medical Physics in 2006. He obtained his American Board of Radiology (ABR) certification in the field of radiotherapy in 2012. Currently, he works as a Sr. Medical Physicist in the Biomedical Physics department, King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Centre in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. He is involved in many radiation oncology technological implementation and development, both clinically and research oriented disciplines. His advanced radiotherapy planning skills as one of the top planners worldwide in previous plan competitions inspired him to initiate the RadiationKnowledge (RK) initiative.

 

His main fields of interest are integrating Medical 3D Printing (M3DP), Virtual & Augmented Reality (VR/AR), artificial intelligence applications in radiotherapy and medicine in general, and designing patient specific phantoms fabricated with 2D, and 3D for dose verification methods.
