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.

Medical Dosimetry Certification Study Guide, Second Edition
Author: K.N. Govinda Rajan, Ph.D.
$85.00Softcover ISBN: 978-1-930524-80-4
eBook ISBN: 978-1-930524-81-1
One of the best study guides for the Medical Dosimetry Certification Board (MDCB) exam is Govinda Rajan's book. Now the expanded second edition of this popular guide is even better, with twice as many questions as in the first edition. The guide focuses on the MDCB exam's "big three" areas of treatment planning, radiation physics, and dose calculation. Other sections of the study guide cover localization, brachytherapy, radiation protection, and quality assurance. Many questions include helpful full-color figures and detailed explanations from one of the world's foremost authorities.

Principles and Practice of Proton Beam Therapy,
AAPM Monograph No. 37
Editors: Indra J. Das and Harald Paganetti
Hardcover ISBN: 978-1-936366-43-9
eBook ISBN: 978-1-936366-44-6
Commissioned by AAPM for their June 2015 Summer School, Proton Therapy: Physical Principles and Practice, this is the first AAPM monograph printed in full color.
Proton therapy has been used in radiation therapy for over 70 years, but within the last decade its use in clinics has grown exponentially. This book fills in the proton therapy gap by focusing on the physics of proton therapy, including beam production, proton interactions, biology, dosimetry, treatment planning, quality assurance, commissioning, motion management, and uncertainties.
Chapters are written by the world's leading medical physicists who work at the pioneering proton treatment centers around the globe. They share their understandings after years of experience treating thousands of patients. Case studies involving specific cancer treatments show that there is some art to proton therapy as well as state-of-the-art science.
Even though the focus lies on proton therapy, the content provided is also valuable to heavy charged particle therapy. The book is tailored mainly to clinical physicists, who might use this as a textbook in the fast-growing field of proton therapy.
