The Modern Technology of Radiation Oncology, Volume 4

Edited By: Jacob Van Dyk

List Price $175.00

ISBN: Hardcover 978-1-951134-02-0
eBook 978-1-951134-03-7


Sample Chapter 1 w/Table of Contents [pdf format]

Once again Jacob Van Dyk has brought together an esteemed group of international experts to describe the latest radiation oncology tools and techniques in volume 4 of The Modern Technology of Radiation Oncology.

Technological advancements in radiation oncology continue at a very rapid pace. The goal of The Modern Technology of Radiation Oncology is to provide state-of-the-art information on making these technologies available in the clinic. New topics addressed in Volume 4 include: surface-guided radiation therapy (RT), PET/MRI, real-time MRI guidance, robust optimization, automated treatment planning, artificial intelligence, adaptive RT, machine learning, big data, radiomics, particle therapy RBE, nanoparticle applications, economic considerations, global medical physics activities, global access to RT, and FLASH RT. These volumes have not only been valued by medical physicists in clinical practice around the world, but also by those in residency programs and in preparation for their certification exams.

Shielding Techniques for Radiation Oncology Facilities, 3rd Edition

Authors: Melissa Martin and Patton H. McGinley

Price: $90.00

Hardcover ISBN: 978-1-951134-00-6
eBook ISBN: 978-1-951134-01-3


Sample Chapter 2 [pdf format]

Patton McGinley's classic Shielding Techniques has been updated to take into account the latest national and international standards for radiation facility shielding. McGinley retired from Emory Clinic in 2000, but he continues to produce shielding evaluations as a private consultant.

AAPM Past-President Melissa Martin joins Pat McGinley for this third edition. Martin has represented ANSI since 2012 on the sub-committee that prepared ISO Standard Number 16645 (2016), which addresses shielding for medical electron accelerators. She founded the consulting firm Therapy Physics, Inc., which has provided shielding design reports for over 500 radiation oncology treatment rooms around the world.

The CT Handbook:
Optimizing Protocols for Today's Feature-Rich Scanners

Author: Timothy P. Szczykutowicz

Price $165.00

ISBN: Hardcover 978-0-944838-53-2
eBook 978-0-944838-57-0



Sample Chapter 1 w/Table of Contents [pdf format]

The target audiences for this book are practicing radiologists, medical physicists, and technologists. The topics covered reflect the day-to-day needs of supporting a CT scanner from the perspective of a CT protocol optimization team.

A realization of Medical Physics 3.0 must involve an appreciation of the administrative, clinical, and technical sides of CT imaging. Since the author treats all of these facets in the book, it embodies the mission of Medical Physics 3.0 for CT.

The text doesn't shy away from comparing features from different vendors. Providing vendor-specific information allows one to gain real-world insight into MDCT scanner reconstruction and AEC operation.

The Print Version Includes a FREE Periodic Table with K-energies.

An Introduction to MRI for Medical Physicists and Engineers

Authors: Anthony Wolbarst and Nathan Yanasak

Price: $120.00

Hardcover ISBN: 978-1-930524-20-0
eBook ISBN: 978-1-930524-58-3


Table of Contents

MRI reveals structural and anatomic details of soft tissues often much better than does CT. It can also exploit novel and unique contrast mechanisms at the biomolecular level to provide information on the physiologic and pathologic status of organs, muscles, nerve trunks, cartilage, etc.

This introduction to the science and technology of MRI has been written at the beginning graduate level primarily for professional medical physicists and engineers in training. Others, such as physicians with physical science backgrounds, may well also find it to be of interest.

Several more advanced topics-like Fourier analysis, k-space, and statistical distributions-are introduced as they are needed.

Richly illustrated in color, this book will help readers understand not just the basics of MRI, but how recent variations on its original implementation have produced the many alternative interpretations of data that have made MRI such a powerful diagnostic tool.
