Perfect for radiation oncologists, medical physicists, and residents in both fields, Practical Radiation Oncology Physics provides a concise and practical summary of the current practice standards in therapeutic medical physics. A companion to the fourth edition of Clinical Radiation Oncology, by Drs. Leonard Gunderson and Joel Tepper, this indispensable guide helps you ensure a current, state-of-the art clinical practice.
"This comprehensive book closes the gap between the textbook and clinical practice. It answers the questions that physicists might initially have when trying to implement a new program, a new procedure, etc. The book will be a great reference for medical physics residents and junior physicists, as well as for physicists who are about to implement a new procedure. Medical residents can use the book to gain insights into the physics aspects of treatments. The authors have managed to distill the most important, currently available information to create a truly practical book on radiation oncology physics. This will be a valuable book for the radiation oncology team."
