Richard R. Miguel, M.S., DABR

Richard Miguel

Biography

Prior to joining West Physics, Mr. Miguel spent several years as a medical physicist at Beth Israel Medical Center in New York City. During his tenure at Beth Israel, he performed quality assurance testing of diagnostic imaging systems for the Departments of Radiology and Nuclear Medicine, the Cancer Center, and the Heart Institute. Mr. Miguel also helped oversee the hospital’s radiation safety program in conjunction with the Radiation Safety Officer (RSO), ensuring the safe and lawful medical application of radiation and radioactive materials for the main hospital and at three additional Beth Israel locations across the city. These experiences have afforded him the opportunity to work and solve problems with individuals that fill a wide range of important roles in the medical and regulatory fields; he is delighted to continue these efforts as a member of the team at West Physics.

Mr. Miguel is originally from Elmont, New York.

Clinton Gray, M.S., DABR, DABMP

Clinton Gray

Biography

Mr. Gray attended the Georgia Institute of Technology for his Bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Engineering, where he was a frequent Dean’s List recipient. During his undergraduate tenure, Mr. Gray served as a research assistant at the Emory University School of Medicine in the area of veterinary MRI. Mr. Gray subsequently completed his Master’s degree at Georgia Tech’s CAMPEP-accredited Medical Physics program. While there, Mr. Gray focused his graduate studies in the area of bio-dosimetry, and his ground-breaking research effort, “Microscopic Image Analysis of Immuno-Fluorescent Foci as a Biodosimeter for Assessing Neutron-Induced Injury,” was accepted in 2011 by the Health Physics Society for presentation at its Mid-Year Meeting. During his graduate training, Mr. Gray also served as a Clinical Research Assistant at Emory University and Grady Memorial Hospital.
