Designed as a test-preparation review for students in radiation oncology, this is a companion book to another volume, Radiation Oncology Self-Assessment Guide. This book provides a review of physics relevant to the field. It uses a flash card question and answer format (the text could be cut up into flash cards). The fourteen chapters start with basic physics concepts and progress to current practice in radiation oncology. The current practice section covers treatment planning, safety, regulations, quality assurance, and SBRT, SRS, TBI, IMRT, and IGRT techniques. Another chapter covers diagnostic imaging topics: MRI, ultrasound, fluoroscopy, mammography, PET, SPECT, and CT scans. Annotation ©2015 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
This guide?a companion to the Radiation Oncology Self-Assessment Guide? is an excellent resource for any radiotherapy team member looking to hone their medical physics knowledge. It covers in depth the principles of radiation physics as applied to radiation therapy along with their technical and clinical applications. To foster retention of key concepts and data, the resource utilizes a user-friendly ?flash card? question and answer format with over 800 questions. The questions are supported by detailed answers and rationales along with reference citations for source information.
