The Physics of Radiation Therapy
Faiz M Khan
Lippincott Williams & Wilkins
As a first year medical physics student, this book seems to be very well written. Khan explains things very clearly and summarizes information from Johns and Cunningham very well. It seems like this would be a very good reference book. The diagrams are also quite illustrative.

Portal Design in Radiation Therapy, 2nd ed
Byron G. Dasher; Anne Marie Vann
D W V Enterprises
This is a better product than just shaving your legs every day. It stings a bit at the beginning, but electrolosis is much more painful and isn't always perfect. I Braun 5270 Silk-Úpil X'elle Body System Epilatorrecommend this product because I had breast cancer and when the hair on my legs came back it was very fine and long. This did a better job and now I only use it maybe once or twice a ...

Workbook for Radiation Protection in Medical Radiography
Mary Alice Statkiewicz Sherer AS RT(R) FASRT
I recieved this book very quickly. I could not believe how inexpensive they were on amazon, especially being specialized textbooks. I would recommend using this site.
Perez and Brady's Principles and Practice of Radiation Oncology
Lippincott Williams & Wilkins
A MUST-HAVE FOR RADIATION THERAPISTS!
As a first-year student in a 2-year Radiation Therapy training program, I believe this book is the "gold standard" of information in the field. Much of my research for written papers comes directly from Perez & Brady's book. As an added benefit, when you purchase a new copy, you get a special code which permits you to set up an online account with the publisher. That, in turn, allows you to ...
Handbook of Evidence-Based Radiation Oncology
great quick reference
This is a great book to have as a quick reference for major studies, staging, appropriate treatments. It was a very helpful review for the re-certification exam in radiation oncology.
Clinical Radiation Oncology (Gunderson, Clinical Radiation Oncology)
Leonard L. Gunderson MD MS
Joel E. Tepper MD
Excellent reference material
The book is an excellent source of information regardless of the oncologic field one is in. It gives a good overview of the field of radiation oncology for those not in the field. Its algorithms are an easy read for quick reference. Multimodality treatment is well emphasized in the text
Principles and Practice of Radiation Therapy
Charles M. Washington MBA RT(T) FASRT
Dennis T. Leaver MS RT(R)(T) FASRT
To outdo oneself
Mr. Washington,whom I know personally as Charles, did any staff member who works in a radiation oncology department, or any student who wants to work in radiation oncology, a great service by revising and updating his three books and combining them into one. As a therapist learning dosimetry this has been an awfully good reference book. I gave my brand new copy as a graduation present to a ...
A First Course in Atmospheric Radiation (2nd Ed.)
Grant W. Petty
Perfect book for an introductory level
This book was used in my graduate atmospheric radiation class. It was far supperior to the book used in my undergrad class (wallace and hobbs introduction to atmospheric sciences) not that W&H was a bad book but this book is much more focused since it is not as broad as W&H book. Good aspects of this book is that it starts with a good fundemental background before it delves into the real meat ...
Classical Electromagnetic Radiation
Mark A. Heald
Jerry B. Marion
Excellent book for beginning graduate students
This book covers many important topics in electromagnetic theory including many areas in Optics, like diffraction,..etc. It fills a gap between the undergrad text books and the more advance graduate EM texts (like Jackson's,.. etc). The materials are easy to follow and understand with no lack of mathematical rigors. Execllent text for beginning graduate students.
Atoms, Radiation, and Radiation Protection (Physics Textbook)
James E. Turner
This book was most useful to me in calculating dose, it has a good breadth of the subject matter and will purchase my own copy...currently using advisor's copy.
Clinical Target Volumes in Conformal and Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy
Conformal radiation therapy represents a new challenge for radiation oncologists. It offers the prospect of either increasing the radiation dose to target tissues while delivering a similar dose to organs at risk, or reducing the dose to organs at risk while maintaining the dose to target tissues. First, lymph node areas at risk are established using the available data from pathological examination of surgical specimens and/or pattern of ...
A Guide for Delineation of Lymph Nodal Clinical Target Volume in Radiation Therapy
G. Ausili Cefaro
Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Conformal radiotherapy offers the opportunity to enhance precise delivery of high dose radiation to the target volume while maintaining normal tissues doses at acceptable tolerance levels. This technique requires an exact definition of the treatment volumes: gross tumour volume (GTV), clinical target volume (CTV) and planning target volume (PTV). For this reason, it is important to have a very good knowledge of radiological anatomy and natural ...
Treatment Planning in Radiation Oncology
Lippincott Williams & Wilkins
Recommended for Understanding RT; for Dosimetry etc
Understanding various aspects of RT in a concise manner from the experts themselves is very appealing. The editors have done a good work of collating the best from the minds in the advancing fields of RT, 3DCRT, IMRT, brachytherapy and STRT. All these topics are presented with contrasting Isodose profiles and respective techniques; give a good grasp of the subjects that form the basis of today's ...
