TitleRadiation protection in medical physics
Author(s)Yves Lemoigne (ed.);Alessandra Caner (ed.)
PublicationDordrecht, Springer, 2011.
Description1 online resource (xvi, 192 p.) : ill. (chiefly col.)
Abstract NoteThis book introduces the fundamental aspects of Radiation Protection in Medical Physics and covers three main themes: General Radiation Protection Principles; Radiobiology Principles; Radiation Protection in Hospital Medical Physics. Each of these topics is developed by analysing the underlying physics principles and their implementation, quality and safety aspects, clinical performance and recent advances in the field. Some issues specific to the individual techniques are also treated, e.g. calculation of patient dose as well as that of workers in hospital, optimisation of equipment used, shielding design of radiation facilities, radiation in oncology such as use of brachytherapy in gynecology or interventional procedures. All topics are presented with didactical language and style, making this book an appropriate reference for students and professionals seeking a comprehensive introduction to the field as well as a reliable overview of the most recent developments

TitleRadiation physics for medical physicists
Author(s)E. B. Podgorsak
PublicationBerlin, Springer, 2006.
Description1 online resource (xxi, 437 p.) : ill
Abstract Note"This book summarizes the radiation physics knowledge that professionals working in medical physics need to master for efficient and safe dealings with ionizing radiation. It contains eight chapters, each chapter covering a specific group of subjects related to radiation physics and is intended as a textbook for a course in radiation physics in medical-physics graduate programs. However, the book may also be of interest to the large number of professionals, not only medical physicists, who in their daily occupations deal with various aspects of medical physics and final a need to improve their understanding of radiation physics." "The main target audience for this book is graduate students studying for M. Sc. and Ph. D degrees in medical physics, who have to possess the necessary physics and mathematics background knowledge to be able to follow and master the complete textbook. Medical residents, technology students, and biomedical engineering students may find certain sections too challenging or esoteric, yet they will find many sections interesting and useful in their studies."--Jacket

TitleRadiation oncology : a physicist's-eye view
Author(s)Michael Goitein
PublicationNew York, Springer, 2008.
Description1 online resource (xi, 330 p.) : ill. (some col.)
Abstract Note"Radiation Oncology: A Physicist's-Eye View was written for both physicists and medical oncologists with the aim of helping them approach the use of radiation in the treatment of cancer with understanding, confidence, and imagination. The book will let practitioners in one field understand the problems of, and find solutions for, practitioners in the other. It will help them to know "why" certain approaches are fruitful while, at the same time, encouraging them to ask the question "Why not?" in the face of assertions that some proposal of theirs is impractical, unreasonable, or impossible. Unlike a textbook, formal and complete developments of the topics are not among the goals, Instead, the reader will develop a foundation for understanding what the author has found to be matters of importance in radiation oncology during over thirty years of experience. Presentations cover, in largely non-technical language, the principal physical and biological aspects of radiation treatment and address practical clinical considerations in planning and delivering therapy."--Jacket
Contents NoteRadiation in the treatment of cancer -- Uncertainty -- Mapping anatomy -- Designing a treatment beam -- Biology matters -- Designing a treatment plan -- Motion management -- Planning manually -- IMRT and optimization -- Proton therapy in water -- Proton therapy in the patient -- Quality assurance -- Confidence

TitleRadiation protection and dosimetry : an introduction to health physics
Author(s)Michael G. Stabin
PublicationNew York, Springer, 2007.
Description1 online resource (xv, 378 p.) : ill. (some col.)
Abstract Note"This comprehensive text provides an overview of all relevant topics in the field of radiation protection (health physics). Radiation Protection and Dosimetry serves as an essential handbook for practicing health physics professionals, and is also ideal as a teaching text for courses at the university level. The book is organized to introduce the reader to basic principles of radiation decay and interactions, to review current knowledge and historical aspects of the biological effects of radiation, and to cover important operational topics such as radiation shielding and dosimetry. In addition to presenting the most up to date treatment of the topics and references to the literature, most chapters contain numerical problems with their solutions for use in teaching or self assessment. One chapter is devoted to Environmental Health Physics, which was written in collaboration with leading professionals in the area."--Jacket
