What's in a name

PRaVDA stands for Proton Radiotherapy Verification and Dosimetry Applications.  Yes, it is helpful to have a catchy acronym for any significant project.  Apologies if this one causes some upset - I don't think so.

We are are on course to provide Proton CT imagery of the same quality as cone-beam x-ray CT. Hopefully, our work will further the usefulness of proton therapy - and then "what's in a name".

Right on! in the former Soviet Union there were two main newspapers: Pravda (truth) and Izvestia (news). For 80 some years of the communist yoke there, and even today, the old Soviet joke was that there is no pravda (truth) in Izvestia and no izvestia (news) in Pravda. It was all drab propaganda. Hardly so with this noble project. Bravo AFP for posting this!

What's in a name...? And besides, why blame the Russian language for a misuse by a tyrant? Should we boycott Beethoven for the act of Adolf Hitler? For all who don't know, "Pravda" means "truth", a rather apt name IMHO!

I realise every European funded research project HAS to have an acronym, but PRAVDA? Every East European refugee from Russian Cold War tyranny will be wondering. Shame, because it is a really exciting sounding project

Note that this project follows on from Prof. Allinson’s work in developing what is claimed to be the world’s largest silicon chip designed for medical imaging.
