Description

A vital reference for the entire radiation oncology team, Khan’s The Physics of Radiation Therapy thoroughly covers the physics and practical clinical applications of advanced radiation therapy technologies. Dr. John Gibbons carries on the tradition established by Dr. Khan in previous editions, ensuring that the 6th Edition provides state-of-the-art information for radiation oncologists, medical physicists, dosimetrists, radiation therapists, and residents alike. This updated classic remains the most practical radiation therapy physics text available, offering an ideal balance between theory and clinical application.

Includes new quality conversion factors and procedures for calibration of flattening filter free linacs; new recommendations for Monitor Unit Calculations and Failure Mode and Effects Analysis; a new addition of the Boltzman Transport calculation algorithm, and new optical surface and magnetic resonance imageguided technologies.

Contains a new chapter on knowledge-based treatment planning.

Covers 3D conformal radiotherapy (3D-CRT), stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), high dose-rate remote afterloaders (HDR), intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT), Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy (VMAT), and proton beam therapy.

Discusses the physical concepts underlying treatment planning, treatment delivery, and dosimetry.
