Scintillation Dosimetry delivers a comprehensive introduction to plastic scintillation dosimetry, covering everything from basic radiation dosimetry concepts to plastic scintillating fiber optics. Comprised of chapters authored by leading experts in the medical physics community, the book:

  • Discusses a broad range of technical implementations, from point source dosimetry scaling to 3D-volumetric and 4D-scintillation dosimetry
  • Addresses a wide scope of clinical applications, from machine quality assurance to small-field and in vivo dosimetry
  • Examines related optical techniques, such as optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) or Čerenkov luminescence

Thus, Scintillation Dosimetry provides an authoritative reference for detailed, state-of-the-art information on plastic scintillation dosimetry and its use in the field of radiation dosimetry.

About the Author:

Sam Beddar, PhD, is a tenured professor in the Division of Radiation Oncology, University of Texas (UT) MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, USA; professeur adjoint in the Département de Physique, Génie Physique et Optique, Université Laval, Québec City, Québec, Canada; and adjunct professor in the Department of Medical Physics, University of Wisconsin School of Medicine, Madison, Wisconsin, USA. He is also the chief of clinical research and service chief of gastrointestinal service in the Department of Radiation Physics at the UT MD Anderson Cancer Center. His research interests include scintillation dosimetry, intraoperative radiation therapy, four-dimensional computerized tomography, four-dimensional magnetic resonance imaging techniques for radiation therapy, and prompt gamma imaging for proton therapy. He has served as a mentor for many graduate students, postdoctoral research fellows, and clinical residents. Dr. Beddar has published more than 140 scientific papers and book chapters, and served as a reviewer for National Institutes of Health (NIH) study section review panels. Dr. Beddar has been principal investigator, co-investigator, and/or project leader on NIH R01, SBIR phase I, SBIR phase II, P01, R21, R43, R44, and T32 grants, and numerous industrial grants. He has served as an associate editor for Medical Physics, section editor for the Journal of Applied Clinical Medical Physics, and reviewer for numerous scientific journals, including the International Journal of Radiation Oncology, Biology, Physics, and Physics in Medicine and Biology.

Luc Beaulieu, PhD, is a professor in the Department of Physics and director of the Graduate Medical Physics Program at Université Laval, Québec City, Québec, Canada (part of Canada’s top 10 research universities), as well as a medical physicist and head of the Medical Physics Research Group in the Department of Radiation Oncology, Centre Hospitalier Universitaire de Québec, Québec City, Canada. He is the recipient of numerous awards and has organized many international conferences. Dr. Beaulieu has been the author or coauthor of more than 185 articles published in refereed journals. He has served as president of the Canadian Organization of Medical Physicists and is an active member of the American Association of Physicists in Medicine, American Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology, European Society for Radiotherapy and Oncology, and American Brachytherapy Society. Dr. Beaulieu’s research interests include image-guided brachytherapy, Monte Carlo dose calculation methods, and detector development.

Review:

"... fills an important gap in the field of detection. The text is comprehensive, focused, and clearly assembled. Medical physicists will find this an important addition to their reference libraries."
―Paul M. DeLuca, Jr., Emeritus Provost and Professor, Department of Medical Physics, University of Wisconsin, Madison, USA

"This book, edited by the scintillation dosimetry gurus Sam Beddar and Luc Beaulieu, is a very timely and comprehensive contribution to the understanding and advancement of scintillation dosimetry applications. It will be of tremendous use to anyone touching, teaching, or researching scintillation dosimeters."
―Jacob (Jake) Van Dyk, Professor Emeritus, Western University, London, Ontario, Canada

"... successfully carries the reader from basic principles to advanced medical physics applications. ... brings a new understanding of a blossoming field and will become a cornerstone for future advances in scintillation dosimetry."
―Kari Tanderup, PhD, Department of Clinical Medicine and Department of Oncology, Aarhus University, Denmark

"Excellent source for not only organic scintillator dosimetry fundamentals, but also its application to radiation oncology dosimetry. I have particularly enjoyed the comparisons with other detector systems. I would recommend [this book] not only to those medical physicists interested in the use of scintillator detectors, but also to those that can be updated in dose measurements for beam characterization, pretreatment verifications, and in vivo dosimetry both in external beam radiotherapy and brachytherapy."
―Núria Jornet, PhD, Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau, Barcelona, Spain

"I welcome an exciting new book in this eminent series; [a book] on the timely topic of scintillation dosimetry. The book covers basic principles and a wide range of applications that many will find of great interest."
―Frank Verhaegen, Professor and Head of Clinical Physics Research, MAASTRO Clinic, Maastricht, Netherlands

"well-structured and easy to follow. This textbook had an ambitious goal of being a reference for scintillation dosimetry primarily and secondly for other luminescence-based dosimetry systems. It provides a fantastic and needed review/update on many of the novel luminescence dosimetry systems. The text has covered a large amount of work and presented all of the key concepts. I believe the authors have been able to meet their goal. I recommend this text to any student, clinical and researching physicists interested in dosimetry, especially optical based systems, and an essential read for those looking to use PSDs in the clinic.... a must read for those interested in luminescence-based dosimetry systems."
Australasian Physical and Engineering Science in Medicine (Oct 2016), review by Alexandre M. C. Santos
