The updated, second edition of the textbook Applied Physics for Radiation Oncology, originally published in 1996. Intended for both radiation therapists and students of radiation therapy. Chapters cover treatment planning, photon and electron dosimetry, brachytherapy, methods of dose calculation, isodose curves, beam-modifying devices, patient and beam geometry, radiation protection, and clinical use and operation of linear accelerators. The authors unify the principles of radiation therapy physics with the real world of clinical practice. A must for radiation therapists.

Intended for both radiation therapists and students of radiation therapy, this clearly-written, well-illustrated book opens with the basics of matter and energy and progresses naturally to the more complex issues involving the clinical application of physics to radiation oncology. In addition to a bibliography, each chapter includes problems with answers which will be especially helpful in teaching radiation therapy students. The authors are teachers of radiation therapy technologists and are able to relate the principles of radiation therapy physics to the real world of clinical practice. Students have found this introductory text to be much more accessible than some of the more advanced texts in the field.Review:
