This popular book is a standard reference text for postgraduate radiation oncology medical physics students. It is also of interest to dosimetrists, radiation therapists, and radiation oncology registrars and residents. Readers will appreciate the many review questions at the end of each chapter, all of which have answers provided. Selected questions and answers from The Q Book, The Physics of Radiotherapy X-Rays: Problems and Solutions are updated and integrated into the text. This edition includes chapters on electrons in radiotherapy and IMRT, IGRT, and tomotherapy. Also updated from an earlier edition are chapters on physics beam modeling, including Monte Carlo methods, adding those mysterious electrons, as well as coverage of radiobiological modeling─including TCP, NTCP, and EUD─and the impact of these concepts on plan analysis and inverse planning. Finally, many color images add to the book’s impact and usefulness.
