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.
2018 RAPHEX EXAMSPublished in cooperation with RAMPS, the Raphex Radiological Physics Examinations are designed to be useful as practice tests, advance study guides, or exams for course credit. A separate answer booklet is included with detailed explanations for the correct answer.
- The 2015-2018 Diagnostic exams have color images whenever possible.
- 2012 through 2018 Therapy and Diagnostic exams are available in eBook editions.
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.

Lectures on Radiation Dosimetry Physics: A Deeper Look into the Foundations of Clinical Protocols
Authors: Michael W. Kissick and Sharareh Fakhraei
$50.00Softcover 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.
