Nathan Busse, M.S.

Nathan Busse has been with Colorado Associates in Medical Physics (CAMP) since 2013. He is board certified through the American Board of Radiology in Diagnostic Radiological Physics and Nuclear Medical Physics. He has also board certified through the American Board of Science in Nuclear Medicine in Nuclear Medicine Physics and Instrumentation.

Nathan specializes in radiation physics, quality control of diagnostic and nuclear medicine imaging equipment, and shielding calculations for radiation producing machines and nuclear medicine facilities. He contributes to clinical support of Medical Imaging departments throughout the Denver metro area by performing equipment testing on all modalities, consulting on protocols, acting as Radiation Safety Officer, and serving as Authorized Medical Physicist for Y-90 Sirsphere and Therasphere procedures. He is a state of Colorado registered medical physicist for all diagnostic applications including MQSA approval.

Nathan completed his Bachelor of Arts in Physics and Mathematics at Transylvania University and his Masters of Science in Diagnostic Medical Physics at Vanderbilt University. He also completed a Clinical Residency in Imaging Physics at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center.

Nathan is based in Denver, CO.
