A community effort to develop an open standard library for Medical Physics in Python. Building quality transparent software together via peer review and open source distribution. Open code is better science.
An open-source Medical Physics python library with a focus on being a place to share, review, improve, and transparently learn off of each other’s code. It is inspired by the collaborative work of our physics peers in astronomy and their Astropy Project. PyMedPhys is available on PyPI and GitHub.
If you would like to dive into the community a great place to get started is to sign up to the mailing list and say hi by introducing yourself with where you’re from, and what you hope to achieve with PyMedPhys.
PyMedPhys is currently within the
beta stage of its life-cycle. It will
stay in this stage until the version number leaves
0.x.x and enters
1.x.x. While PyMedPhys is in
beta stage, no API is guaranteed to be
stable from one release to the next. In fact, it is very likely that the
entire API will change multiple times before a
1.0.0 release. In practice,
this means that upgrading
pymedphys to a new version will possibly break
any code that was using the old version of pymedphys. We try to be abreast of
this by providing details of any breaking changes from one release to the next
within the Release Notes.
PyMedPhys is what it is today due to its contributors. Core contributors and contributors who have been active in the last six months as well as their respective employers are presented below.
