Handbook of Radiotherapy Physics: Theory and Practice

Safe and effective radiotherapy requires close collaboration between radiationoncologists, radiation technologists and medical physicists, and all must have an understandingof each others disciplines.

Our aim has been to provide a comprehensive text providing most ofthe theoretical and practical knowledge that medical physicists need to know, including theessential underlying radiation biology. Although principally aimed at practising medicalphysicists, this book will also be useful to all other professionals involved in radiationtherapy, whether they be students masters and PhD level , university teachers, researchers,radiation oncologists, or radiation technologists.

The book is organised into 13 Parts, each dealing with a major self-contained subject area. Each part begins with an introduction by the editors and is subdivided into chapters mostlywritten by a single author.

References are collected together at the end of each part. In order tocover in detail all aspects of radiotherapy physics and biology, a high level of expertise wasrequired. Contributions have been brought together from eminent specialists in the field,mostly from Europe, but also some from North America.

The editors have, where necessary,combined contributions from different authors in order to provide a logical flowas far aspossible details of who wrote what are shown on the title page of each chapter. Parts A through C provide the fundamentals of the underlying physics, radiobiology andtechnology respectively. Parts D through H provide the practical information needed tosupport external-beam radiotherapy: dose measurements, properties of clinical beams,patient dose computation, treatment planning and quality assurance.

An appendix to Part Dgives complementary details to enable a thorough understanding of the methods and data usedfor absolute dose measurement. Part I seeks to capture the exciting new developments in thesubject including those in particle therapy, thus providing a basis for the reader to understandthe ever expanding literature in this area. Parts J and K deal with brachytherapy using sealedand unsealed sources respectively.

The framework of radiation protection is covered in Part Lincluding an appendix describing the detailed application of UK legislation. Part M containsuseful tables of physical constants, and electron and photon interaction data. In a multi-author book of this length there will inevitably be a certain unevenness of styleand level of detail and also some repetition; we see this as a strength rather than a weaknessalthough we as editors have sought to ensure consistency.

We wish to thank our many authorsfor their high-class contributions and not least for their patience during the time it has taken tobring together this work. It is unavoidable that some chapters are even more up-to-the-minutethan others which were written more promptly. We would also like to thank Don Chapmanand Helen Mayles who have read and commented on some of the chapters.

Finally, we have tried to make the content as international as possible by taking intoaccount different practices and terminology in different parts of the world. For example wehave used the words Radiation Oncologist and Radiation Technologist to describe the medicalstaff who prescribe radiotherapy and who operate the treatment machines respectively.

Colleagues who carry out computer planning are referred to as Dosimetrists. It is our hope that our readers will learn as much from reading this book as we have fromediting it. He completed a master of science degree in radiation physics atSt Bartholomews Hospital Medical School, following which he joinedthe staff of Guys Hospital, where he worked until During his time there he has overseen the expansionof the Radiotherapy Department from having five linear accelerators with conventional colli-matorsto nine machines all equipped with multileaf collimators and portal imaging devices.

The department uses modern imaging technology to enable 3D treatment planning for a highproportion of its patients and has been one of the pioneers of intensity modulated radiotherapyand image guided radiotherapy in the UK. As chairman of the Radiotherapy Topic Group of the Institute of Physics and Engineeringin Medicine he was instrumental in producing Report 75 on the design of radiotherapy treat-mentfacilities and Report 81 on quality assurance in radiotherapy.

He has an active interest inresearch especially in improving the physical basis of radiotherapy treatment and treatmentplanning. This course provided the inspiration for this book. He and his wife, Helen, also a medical physicist, met at Guys Hospital, London and havetwo daughters. Alan Nahum was born in Manchester in He read physicsat Worcester College, Oxford University. Alan then trained and worked as a school science teacher andworked as a gas cutter in a Volvo factory in Arvika, Sweden, beforere-entering the medical physics world in as forskarassistent at theRadiofysik department, University of Umea, where he taught andorganised courses in radiation dosimetry, worked on ion-chamberresponse and on dosimetry codes of practice with Professor Hans Svensson, and where histwo daughters Rebecka and Marie were born.

Medical Faculty in In Alan joined the Joint Department of Physics at the Institute of Cancer Researchand Royal Marsden Hospital, Sutton, UK where his interests were redirected towardsconformal radio therapy and subsequently to radioiological modelling.

In he and PhilipMayles started an annual 2! Postdoctoral scientists on his teamincluded Beatriz Sanchez-Nieto, Frank Verhaegen, Cephas Mubata, Stefano Gianolini andJoao Seco, working on Monte Carlo simulation applied to dosimeter response and treatmentplanning, on biological modelling, and on building a database for analysis of clinical trials inconformal therapy.

Heserved as an associate editor for the journal Medical Physics between and Recreational interests include foreign languages, cooking, cricket and classical music. Jean-Claude Rosenwald was born in in Neuilly, close to Paris. After earning an engineering degree in electronics, nuclear physics andcomputing sciences obtained in Nancy in , he began his career as acomputer scientist developing dose calculation programs inbrachytherapy at the Institut Gustave Roussy in Villejuif, under thesupervision of Andree Dutreix.

He obtained his PhD on this subjectin from the University of Nancy. He was appointed medical physicist at the Institut Gustave Roussyfrom and then moved in to the Institut Curie in Paris,as head of the Physics Department. Altogether, more than 14 PhD and60 masters students have undertaken research programmes under his supervision. Rosenwald has a particular interest in the use of computers in radiation therapy, hasparticipated in several international conferences, has been a co-author of several reports on thissubject and was involved in the development of commercial solutions for treatment planningboth for external-beam radiotherapy and brachytherapy.

He has also promoted the use ofproton beams in radiotherapy and played a major role in the development of the Centre deProtontherapie dOrsay. He has contributed to the expansion of the.

 С подружкой. Немец был не. Клушар кивнул: - Со спутницей.

Только и делов - вывести человека на свежий воздух. Халохот отчаянно озирался, но Беккера нигде не было. Сотни людей стояли на коленях перед алтарем, принимая причастие. Может быть, Беккер был среди .

 Сегодня утром Дэвид рассказал мне о ваших планах. Он сказал, что ты будешь очень расстроена, если поездку придется отложить. Сьюзан растерялась. - Вы говорили с Дэвидом сегодня утром. - Разумеется.

 Это блистательная рекламная операция, - сказал Стратмор.  - Только подумай - все виды пуленепробиваемого стекла непроницаемы для пуль, но если компания предлагает вам попробовать пробить ее стекло, все хотят это сделать. - И японцы действительно верят, что Цифровая крепость - это нечто особенное.

Сьюзан попробовала выскользнуть из его рук, Хейл очнулся и притянул ее к себе за талию. - Отпусти меня! - крикнула она, и ее голос эхом разнесся под куполом шифровалки. Мозг Хейла лихорадочно работал. Звонок коммандера явился для него полным сюрпризом.
