Giorgia Nicolini


Giorgia Nicolini has almost 20 years of experience as a medical physicist.

After an initial experience in nuclear medicine and radiology areas, she focused on radiotherapy working for more than 10 years within a radiotherapy department. As responsible for treatment planning, she established new strategies to be used in clinical routine and mastered gating and IGRT themes; she took care of the development, validation and clinical implementation of new techniques. Training people has been always one of her professional activity.

In Radiqa medical physics team she offers her expertise in planning, TPS commissioning, start-up of new techniques and optimization of internal procedures.

She is author of more than 70 peer-reviewed publications, mainly focused on EPID portal dosimetry, dose calculation algorithms, IMRT and VMAT solutions appraisal.

Eugenio Vanetti


Eugenio Vanetti was active for more than a decade in clinical radiotherapy as medical physicist.

He accumulated a deep experience on linac measurements in standard and non-standard conditions, covering from routinely linac QA management to commissioning activities. Under his responsibilities, HDR and soft x-ray treatments, IT management of the department network, too.

In Radiqa medical physics team he deals in particular with linac dosimetric measurements to ensure an appropriate commissioning and implementation, using various equipment with flexibility. He has great experience in coding, developing in house analysis programs.

He published more than 50 papers on peer-reviewed international journals, main fields of interest investigated are: EPID portal dosimetry, IMRT and VMAT solutions assessment and calculation algorithm characterization.

Antonella Fogliata


Antonella Fogliata has more than 25 years of experience as medical physicist in the field of radiotherapy. She has been working at the Oncology Institute of Southern Switzerland, acting as head of the medical physics group for almost 10 years. She has been particularly active in the research and development of the department, pioneering the implementation of IMRT and VMAT. She is currently affiliated with the Humanitas Hospital in Italy, for mostly research and training. Among the current main fields: the advanced treatment techniques, the calculation and optimization algorithms, the knowledge based planning, the radiomics applied to radiotherapy, the small fields. She is leading training courses on advanced radiotherapy techniques. In the Radiqa team she offers her expertise in knowledge based planning and new techniques implementation, as well as consultancy in the medical physics field. She authored more than 140 full articles in international peer-reviewed journals.
