A Century of Radiation and Medical Physics
at New York's Memorial Hospital
Authors: Judith Groch, John Laughlin, Jean St. Germain, and Clifton Ling
ISBN: soft cover 978-0-944838-08-2
Since the early 1910s, the staff of Memorial Hospital in New York has been deeply involved in the development and application of radiation to treat cancer. This book chronicles the activities and contributions of the hospital's medical physics staff from 1910-2010. Memorial Hospital's medical physics pioneers included the likes of Gioacchino Failla and Edith Quimby, while the modern eras were led by John Laughlin and Clifton Ling.

Image Guidance in Radiation Therapy: Techniques, Accuracy, and Limitations, AAPM Monograph No. 39
Editors: Parham Alaei and George X. Ding
ISBN: hard cover 978-1-936366-62-0
Image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT) has been used since the inception of radiation therapy, but its usage became routine with the development of gantry-mounted cone-beam CT systems in the early 21st century. IGRT is now the norm in the clinics equipped with modern radiation therapy delivery systems, as it enables more accurate delivery of radiation to intended targets.
Produced as part of the AAPM 2018 summer school, this book provides an overview of the state-of-the-art image-guidance techniques employed in radiotherapy. It provides necessary information to medical physicists who would like to know about current image guidance techniques and modalities.
A Primer on Theory and Operation of Linear Accelerators in Radiation Therapy, 3rd Edition
C. J. Karzmark and Robert J. Morton (Edited by James Lamb)
ISBN: soft cover 978-1-930524-96-5
This short introductory book provides an overview of the components of the linear accelerator
and how they function and interrelate. The auxiliary systems necessary to maintain the operation
of the linac are also described. Ideal for students. The 3rd edition has been formatted for ease
of reading including illustrations.
Since its first appearance, this book has become a classic. This third edition takes into account the significant advances occurring in radiotherapy linacs since the second edition was published in 1998. Again, the level of treating these advances is simplified so that the audience of radiation therapists-as well as physicians, engineers, and physicists-can benefit.
