TitleRadiation Physics for Medical Physicists
Author(s)Podgorsak, Ervin B
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2016.
DescriptionLVIII, 906 p. 257 illus., 67 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThis textbook summarizes the basic knowledge of atomic, nuclear, and radiation physics that professionals working in medical physics and biomedical engineering need for efficient and safe use of ionizing radiation in medicine. Concentrating on the underlying principles of radiation physics, the textbook covers the prerequisite knowledge for medical physics courses on the graduate and post-graduate levels in radiotherapy physics, radiation dosimetry, imaging physics, and health physics, thus providing the link between elementary undergraduate physics and the intricacies of four medical physics specialties: diagnostic radiology physics, nuclear medicine physics, radiation oncology physics, and health physics.??To recognize the importance of radiation dosimetry to medical physics three new chapters have been added to the 14 chapters of the previous edition. Chapter 15 provides a general introduction to radiation dosimetry. Chapter 16 deals with absolute radiation dosimetry systems that establish absorbed dose or some other dose related quantity directly from the signal measured by the dosimeter. Three absolute dosimetry techniques are known and described in detail: (i) calorimetric; (ii) chemical (Fricke), and (iii) ionometric. Chapter 17 deals with relative radiation dosimetry systems that rely on a previous dosimeter calibration in a known radiation field. Many relative radiation dosimetry systems have been developed to date and four most important categories used routinely in medicine and radiation protection are described in this chapter: (i) Ionometric dosimetry; (ii) Luminescence dosimetry; (iii) Semiconductor dosimetry; and (iv) Film dosimetry. The book is intended as a textbook for a radiation physics course in academic medical physics graduate programs as well as a reference book for candidates preparing for certification examinations in medical physics sub-specialties. It may also be of interest to many professionals, not only physicists, who in their daily occupations deal with various aspects of medical physics or radiation physics and have a need or desire to improve their understanding of radiation physics.?? ?? ?? ?? ?? ????

TitleInorganic Scintillators for Detector Systems : Physical Principles and Crystal Engineering
Author(s)Lecoq, Paul;Gektin, Alexander;Korzhik, Mikhail
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2017.
DescriptionXVI, 408 p. 226 illus., 44 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThis second edition features new chapters highlighting advances in our understanding of the behavior and properties of scintillators, and the discovery of new families of materials with light yield and excellent energy resolution very close to the theoretical limit. The book focuses on the discovery of next-generation scintillation materials and on a deeper understanding of fundamental processes. Such novel materials with high light yield as well as significant advances in crystal engineering offer exciting new perspectives. Most promising is the application of scintillators for precise time tagging of events, at the level of 100 ps or higher, heralding a new era in medical applications and particle physics. Since the discovery of the Higgs Boson with a clear signature in the lead tungstate scintillating blocks of the CMS Electromagnetic Calorimeter detector, the current trend in particle physics is toward very high luminosity colliders, in which timing performance will ultimately be essential to mitigating pile-up problems. New and extremely fast light production mechanisms based on Hot-Intraband-Luminescence as well as quantum confinement are exploited for this purpose. Breakthroughs such as crystal engineering by means of co-doping procedures and selection of cations with small nuclear fragmentation cross-sections will also pave the way for the development of more advanced and radiation-hard materials. Similar innovations are expected in medical imaging, nuclear physics ecology, homeland security, space instrumentation and industrial applications. This second edition also reviews modern trends in our understanding and the engineering of scintillation materials. Readers will find new and updated references and information, as well as new concepts and inspirations to implement in their own research and engineering endeavors

TitleMagnetic Resonance Imaging : Theory and Practice
Author(s)Vlaardingerbroek, Marinus T;Boer, Jacques A
PublicationBerlin, Heidelberg, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2003.
DescriptionXXI, 500 p : online resource
Abstract NoteOver recent years Magnetic Resonance Imaging has become a well-established textbook on basic MRI technique. A comprehensive survey of the analytical treatment of MRI physics and engineering, it gives readers the background needed to cope with the problems that arise when applying MRI in medicine or when (sub)systems or sequences for new applications are designed. Special attention is paid to the treatment of intrinsic artifacts of the different sequences, which can be described in a mathematically uniform way for the different scan methods. The book contains many images, especially showing specific properties of the different scan methods. The methods discussed include RARE, GRASE, EPI and Spiral Scan. The second edition was expanded in response to recent developments. In various places the treatment was refined. In particular, the chapter on motion and flow was expanded, and a new chapter was added, describing the configuration theory and its use in the understanding of multipulse sequences such as BURST, TSE, and FFE. This edition also offered an overview by A.L. Luiten of the early history of MRI imaging. The additions in the third edition were prompted by the development of stronger gradient and new RF coil systems that have led to a shift of attention in the practical clinical use of some sequences such as Balanced FFE and q-space diffusion imaging and SENSE

TitleRadiotherapy and Brachytherapy
Author(s)Lemoigne, Yves;Caner, Alessandra
PublicationDordrecht, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer Netherlands, 2009.
DescriptionXVIII, 250 p : online resource
Abstract NoteThis book reports the majority of lectures given during the NATO Advanced Study Institute ASI-982996, which was held at the European Scientific Institute of Archamps (ESI, Archamps ??? France) from November 15 to November 27, 2007. The ASI course was structured in two parts: the first was dedicated to what is often called ???teletherapy???, i. e. radiotherapy with external beams, while the second focused on internal radiotherapy, also called ???brachytherapy??? or ???curietherapy??? in honour of Madame Curie who initiated the technique about a century ago. This ASI took place after the European School of Medical Physics, which devoted a 3 week period to medical imaging, a subject complementary to the topics of this book. Courses devoted to nuclear medicine and digital imaging techniques are collected in two volumes of the NATO Science Series entitled ???Physics for Medical Imaging Applications??? (ISBN 978-1-4020-5650-5) and ???Molecular imaging: computer reconstruction and practice??? (ISBN 978-1-4020- 8751-6). Every year in autumn ESI organises the European School of Medical Physics, which covers a large spectrum of topics ranging from Medical Imaging to Radiotherapy, over a period of 5 weeks. Thanks to the Cooperative Science and Technology sub-programme of the NATO Science Division, weeks four and five were replaced this year by the ASI course dedicated to ???Physics of Modern Radiotherapy & Brachytherapy???. This allowed the participation of experts and students from 20 different countries, with diverse cultural background and p- fessional experience
