Physics is fundamental to many of the technologies used across medicine today, yet it is often forgotten -- and certainly neglected -- that physics has made important contributions to health ever since the birth of medicine 5000 years ago. This is despite the fact that the contributions of physics to human health have been recognised at the highest level -- eg, in Nobel Prizes (Röntgen won the first Nobel Prize for physics in 1901 for his discovery of X-rays).
