The Modern Technology of Radiation Oncology, Vol. 3
Jacob Van Dyk, Editor

$150.00

ISBN: 978-1-930524-57-6

The evidence is growing that the improvements in imaging, along with increasingly conformal radiation treatments, are providing significant benefits for patient outcome, both in terms of tumor control and reduced normal tissue complications. The challenge is for medical physicists and radiation oncologists to stay “in tune” with these rapidly changing advances that provide a better quality of life for patients. The goal of The Modern Technology of Radiation Oncology is to provide state-of-the-art, updated information on making these technologies available in the clinic. Medical Physics Publishing is pleased to introduce volume 3 of The Modern Technology of Radiation Oncology. The series has become a reference around the world for practicing medical physicists and especially for the medical physicists who are sitting their certification exams.

Quality and Safety in Radiotherapy: Learning the New Approaches in Task Group 100 and Beyond


Editors: Bruce R. Thomadsen, Peter Dunscombe, Eric Ford, Saiful Huq, Todd Pawlicki, and Steven Sutlief

$110.00

ISBN: 978-1-888340-49-5

Medical Physics Monograph #36 was written for the 2013 AAPM Summer School in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Task Group 100 examined quality and safety techniques that have proven effective in industry and, more recently, in many medical disciplines. These techniques consider not only QA for equipment, but also for procedures as a whole in the context of the facility. These approaches and methodologies may be new and somewhat daunting to many practicing medical physicists. The goal of this book is to make these new techniques accessible to the broader medical physics community.


The text features practice exercises that reinforce the concepts learned in the book. It also includes a CD containing the text, large tables, and many of the book’s images in color.

Practical Implementation of Light Ion Beam Treatments

by: Michael Farley Moyers and Stanislav M. Vatnitsky

ISBN: 978-1-930524-55-2


$175.00

This book is indexed and includes a DVD with figures and tables in color.
The number of light ion beam (including protons) treatment programs is rapidly increasing worldwide; however, there are currently no practical guides to support the acceptance testing, commissioning, treatment planning, and routine quality assurance of these programs. This book is aimed at individuals who are involved in those activities with respect to light ion beam treatment delivery. The reader should already be familiar with the fundamentals of radiation treatment including interaction of ionization radiation with matter and the main features of stopping powers, multiple Coulomb scattering, and nuclear reactions used to characterize the penetration of charged particles through heterogeneous tissues. Typically these individuals are medical physicists with responsibilities for calibration and verification of beam delivery, quality assurance, and computerized treatment planning; however, other individuals may also find the book useful. The book provides practical recommendations and guides the reader through the steps of the treatment process focusing on practical details.

An excerpt from the Forward by Paul M. DeLuca, Jr.:
I note that this text resulted from earlier conversations with the authors dealing with the content of the recent ICRU Report on Proton Therapy. What was immediately clear was the need for a text that would serve as a guide for members of the proton radiation oncology community, hence this text. The present text provides an exhaustive treatment of the clinical use of energetic protons for cancer therapy. The approach is pragmatic and clinically focused and will serve as a well-used handbook for clinical proton physics.
