TitleCobalt Blues : The Story of Leonard Grimmett, the Man Behind the First Cobalt-60 Unit in the United States
Author(s)Almond, Peter R
PublicationNew York, NY, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer New York, 2013.
DescriptionXVIII, 158 p : online resource
Abstract NoteFor the latter half of the 20th century, cobalt-60 units were the mainstay of radiation treatments for cancer. Cobalt Blues describes the development of the first cobalt-60 unit in the United States and the man behind it, Leonard Grimmett. Conceptually conceived before World War II, it only became possible because of the development of nuclear reactors during the war. Although Grimmett conceived of and published his ideas first, the Canadians built the first units because of the capability of their reactor to produce more suitable cobalt-60 sources. This book tells the story of how Grimmett and others came together at the time that the U S Atomic Energy Agency was pushing the use of radioactivity in medicine. Due to his sudden death, very little information about Grimmett was known until recently, when various documents have come to light, allowing the full story to be told

TitleRadiation Physics for Medical Physicists
Author(s)Podgorsak, Ervin B
PublicationBerlin, Heidelberg, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2006.
DescriptionXXII, 438 p. 115 illus : online resource
Abstract NoteThis 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 find 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. Candidates preparing for professional certification exams in any of the medical physics subspecialties should find the material useful, and some of the material would also help candidates preparing for certification examinations in medical dosimetry or radiation-related medical specialties. Numerous textbooks are available covering the various subspecialties of medical physics but they generally make a transition from the elementary basic physics directly into the intricacies of the given medical physics subspecialty. The intent of this textbook is to provide the missing link between the elementary physics on the one hand and the physics of the subspecialties on the other hand

TitleRadiation Physics for Medical Physicists
Author(s)Podgorsak, Ervin B
PublicationBerlin, Heidelberg, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2010.
DescriptionXXXIV, 745 p : online resource
Abstract NoteThis well-received textbook and reference 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. Concentrating on the underlying principles of radiation physics, it 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 physics on the one hand and the intricacies of the medical physics specialties on the other hand. This expanded and revised second edition offers reorganized and expanded coverage. Several of the original chapters have been split into two with new sections added for completeness and better flow. New chapters on Coulomb scattering; on energy transfer and energy absorption in photon interactions; and on waveguide theory have been added in recognition of their importance. Others training for professions that deal with ionizing radiation in diagnosis and treatment as well as medical residents, students of technology and dosimetry,and biomedical engineering will find many sections interesting and useful for their studies. It also serves as excellent preparatory materials for candidates taking professional certification examinations in medical physics, medical dosimetry, and in medical specialties such as radiotherapy, diagnostic radiology, and nuclear medicine. From reviews of the first edition: "Any instructor teaching an introductory graduate-level course on the principles of medical physics should consider this book for adoption as a text??? cover[s] the principles themselves, and it covers them very well." (Medical Physics, January 2006) "??? a delight and ready-reference also to seasoned practitioners??? This textbook, based on notes the author ???developed over the past 25 years of teaching radiation physics to MSc and PhD students in medical physics at McGill University??? is a real gem for the bookshelf of anyone already professional working in the radiation sciences???" (John H. Hubbell, Radiation Physics and Chemistry) "...for the theory of radiation physics at a fundamental level, Podgorsak's book provides a wonderful resource presented in a well organized and easy to learn manner, in a way not found in any other text...

TitleParticle Accelerators: From Big Bang Physics to Hadron Therapy
Author(s)Amaldi, Ugo
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2015.
DescriptionXVII, 284 p. 145 illus., 28 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteRather than focusing on the contributions of theoretical physicists to the understanding of the subatomic world and of the beginning of the universe - as most popular science books on particle physics do - this book is different in that, firstly, the main focus is on machine inventors and builders and, secondly, particle accelerators are not only described as discovery tools but also for their contributions to tumour diagnosis and therapy. The characters of well-known (e.g. Ernest Lawrence) and mostly unknown actors (e.g. Nicholas Christofilos) are outlined, including many colourful quotations. The overall picture supports the author???s motto: ???Physics is beautiful and useful???. ?? Advance appraisal: ???Accelerators go all the way from the unique and gargantuan Large Hadron Collider to thousands of smaller versions in hospitals and industry. Ugo Amaldi has experience across the range. He has worked at CERN and has for many years been driving the application of accelerators in medicine. This is a must-read introduction to this frontier of modern technology, written beautifully by a world expert.??? Frank Close, Professor of Physics at Oxford University author of "The Infinity Puzzle" ???This book should be read by school teachers and all those interested in the exploration of the microcosm and its relation to cosmology, and in the use of accelerators for medical applications. With a light hand and without formulae the author easily explains complicated matters, spicing up the text with amusing historical anecdotes. His reputation as an outstanding scientist in all the fields treated guarantees high standards.??? Herwig Schopper, former CERN Director General?? author of "LEP - The Lord of the Collider Rings at CERN" ???This book tells the story of modern physics with an unusual emphasis on the machine-builders who made it all possible, and their machines.?? Learning to accelerate?? particles has enabled physicists to probe the subatomic world and gain a deeper understanding of the cosmos.?? It has also brought numerous benefits to medicine, from the primitive X-ray machines of over a century ago to today's developments in hadron therapy for cancer.?? Amaldi tells this story in a most fascinating way.??? Edward Witten, Professor of ??Mathematical Physics at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton;??Fields Medal (1990)

TitleMedical Image Processing : Techniques and Applications
Author(s)Dougherty, Geoff
PublicationNew York, NY, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer New York, 2011.
DescriptionXVI, 380 p : online resource
Abstract NoteThe field of medical imaging advances so rapidly that all of those working in it, scientists, engineers, physicians, educators and others, need to frequently update their knowledge in order to stay abreast of developments. While journals and periodicals play a crucial role in this, more extensive, integrative publications that connect fundamental principles and new advances in algorithms and techniques to practical applications are essential. Medical Image Processing: Techniques and Applications meets this challenge and provides an enduring bridge in the ever expanding field of medical imaging. It serves as an authoritative resource and self-study guide explaining sophisticated techniques of quantitative image analysis, with a focus on medical applications. The book emphasizes the conceptual framework of image analysis and the effective use of image processing tools. It presents a detailed approach to each application while emphasizing insight and ???tricks of the trade???, and the applicability of techniques to other research areas. Although each chapter is written by an expert (or experts) in that area and is essentially self-contained, fundamental connections between the different topics are emphasized so that the book forms an integrated whole. The book is designed for end users who wish to update their skills and understanding with the latest techniques in image analysis. Providing unprecedented breadth and detail, it will be a valuable cross-disciplinary resource both at the graduate and specialist level. It is also well suited ??to supplement and motivate learning in graduate-level image processing classes within biomedical engineering, radiology and computer science
