Dr. Eric K. Addison



Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital

(President - GSMP)

Dr. Eric K. Addison is a Chief Medical Physicist and a Senior Lecturer at the Physics, Department Faculty of Physical and Computational Sciences, College of Science, Kwame Nkrumah University of Science & Technology, Kumasi, Ghana and at the Medical Physics Department, of the School of Nuclear and Allied Sciences, University of Ghana.

He has been lecturing in the Department since 1994. He is currently a Part-Time Lecturer at the Department of Medical Physics, School of Nuclear and Applied Sciences, University of Ghana, Legon. He is also a Medical Physicist and the Head Radiation Safety Officer at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital, Kumasi.

Dr. Kotei Addison is the Assistant National Coordinator for the International Atomic Energy Agency Technical Cooperation Project in the Establishment of the Nuclear Science Teaching Centre, Department of Physics, KNUST and also the AFRA Project Coordinator in Medical Physics. He lectures both Graduates and Undergraduates.

Dr. Kotei Addison, at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital – Oncology Directorate and Radiology Directorate, assisted in the Establishment and Installation of the Gamma Camera at the Nuclear Medicine Unit in the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital. He played a supervisory role in the establishment of the New Radiotherapy/Nuclear Medicine Unit at Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital. He also provided Medical Physics Clinical services to Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital and Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology.

His research areas involve the fields of Medical Physics, Radiobiology, Health Physics, Biophysics, and Biomedical Engineering. In the field of Medical Physics, Dr. Addison assess and analyzes the radiation dose distribution in patients undergoing diagnostic radiology and computed tomography. Optimization and dose limitation is of international concern since radiation is a carcinogen. Radiotherapy research constructs verifiable High–Dose–Rate 192Ir brachytherapy models for accurate dose distribution. External beam radiotherapy dosimetry and treatment planning are the principal knowledge – based attributes of his characteristics.

He has constructed a breast jig for treatment planning and routine treatment for all breast cancer patients at Oncology Directorate, Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital.

The research findings, in all areas of his research interests, have been published.

Owing to his unique expertise and interest in Medical Physics training and the harmonization as well as standardization of radiotherapy practices in Ghana and the subregion, he has availed himself to serve in Committees and member for different organizations. He the President of Ghana Medical Physics Society (GSMP), a professional body for medical physicists with aim of promoting the application of physics to medicine.
