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. Many just refer to it as "the little purple book" or "the Karzmark book." 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.

Lectures on Radiation Dosimetry Physics: A Deeper Look into the Foundations of Clinical Protocols

Authors: Michael W. Kissick and Sharareh Fakhraei


Softcover ISBN: 978-1-930524-92-7
eBook ISBN: 978-1-930524-93-4

Looking for a book that will deepen your knowledge about the particle interaction physics hidden inside radiation dosimetry protocols like TG-51 or its predecessor, TG-21? Unlike a cumbersome textbook with more overhead than insight, this nimble text distills actual lectures from a leading medical physics graduate program. In fact, the University of Wisconsin course this book is based on was previously taught by Frank Herbert Attix and Thomas Rockwell Mackie, legends whose insights are still found in these pages, refined and added to by the authors. After reading and studying this book, you will feel that even routine clinical tasks will remind you of the deep historical physics breakthroughs of generations of physicists who got us where we are today.
