Khan's Lectures: Handbook of the Physics of Radiation Therapy will provide a digest of the material contained in The Physics of Radiation Therapy. Lectures will be presented somewhat similar to a PowerPoint format, discussing key points of individual chapters. Selected diagrams from the textbook will be used to initiate the discussion. New illustrations will used, wherever needed, to enhance the understanding of important concepts. Discussion will be condensed and often bulleted. Theoretical details will be referred to the textbook and the cited literature. A problem set (practice questions) will be provided at the end of each chapter topic. Features 20-30 practice questions (a mix of problems and multiple choice questions) will be provided at the end of each chapter, with answer keys, hints, and explanations for each question at the end of the book 4-color diagrams (new as well as from the primary text) Good complement to Physics of Radiation Therapy Great for board review as well as recertification Table of contents Preface CHAPTER 1: Structure of Matter Lecture 1A The Atom Lecture 1B Forces of Nature and Fundamental Particles Review Questions CHAPTER 2: Nuclear Transformations Lecture 2A Radioactivity Lecture 2B Nuclear Reactions Review Questions CHAPTER 3: Production of X-Rays Lecture 3A X-Ray Tubes Lecture 3B Physics of X-Ray Production Review Questions CHAPTER 4: Clinical Radiation Generators Lecture 4A X-Ray and Electron Beams Lecture 4B Heavy Particle Accelerators Review Questions CHAPTER 5: Interactions of Ionizing Radiation Lecture 5A Photon Interactions Lecture 5B Particle Interactions Review Questions CHAPTER 6: Measurement of Ionizing Radiation Lecture 6A Measurement of Exposure Lecture 6B Chambers and Electrometers Review Questions CHAPTER 7: Quality of X-Ray Beams Lecture 7 Beam Quality Specification and Measurement of X-Ray Review Questions CHAPTER 8: Measurement of Absorbed Dose Lecture 8A Dosimetry Concepts Lecture 8B Dosimeters Review Questions CHAPTER 9: Dose Distribution and Scatter Analysis Lecture 9 Depth Dose and Tissue-Air Ratios Review Questions CHAPTER 10: A System of Dosimetric Calculations Lecture 10 Formalism for Monitor Units Calculation Review Questions CHAPTER 11: Distributions Treatment Planning I: Isodose Lecture 11 Isodose Distribution and Plan Evaluation Review Questions CHAPTER 12: Corrections, and Setup Treatment Planning II: Patient Data, Lecture 12A Patient Data Acquisition, Simulation, and Treatment Verification Lecture 12B Corrections for Irregular Surface and Tissue Inhomogeneities Review Questions Contents CHAPTER 13: Skin Dose, and Field Separation Treatment Planning III Lecture 13 Field Shaping, Field Separation Review Questions CHAPTER 14: Electron Beam Therapy Lecture 14A Electron Beam Interactions and Dosimetry Lecture 14B Electron Beam Treatment Planning Review Questions CHAPTER 15: Brachytherapy Lecture 15 Low-Dose-Rate Brachytherapy: Rules of Implantation and Dose Specification Review Questions CHAPTER 16: Radiation Protection Lecture 16 Radiation Protection and Shielding Design Review Questions CHAPTER 17: Quality Assurance Lecture 17 Quality Assurance and Maintenance Review Questions CHAPTER 18: Total Body Irradiation Lecture 18 Total Body Irradiation: Techniques and Dosimetry Review Questions CHAPTER 19: Radiation Therapy Three-Dimensional Conformal Lecture 19 3D Conformal Radiotherapy: Dosimetry and Treatment Planning Review Questions Contents CHAPTER 20: Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy Lecture 20 IMRT: Commissioning, Treatment Planning, and Delivery Review Questions CHAPTER 21: Stereotactic Radiation Therapy Lecture 21 Stereotactic Radiotherapy and Radiosurgery Review Questions CHAPTER 22: High-Dose-Rate Brachytherapy Lecture 22 High-Dose-Rate Brachytherapy: Dosimetry and Treatment Planning Review Questions CHAPTER 23: Prostate Implants Lecture 23 Prostate Implants: Technique, Dosimetry, and Treatment Planning Review Questions CHAPTER 24: Intravascular Brachytherapy Lecture 24 Intravascular Brachytherapy: Techniques and Dosimetry Review Questions CHAPTER 25: Image-Guided Radiation Therapy Lecture 25 IGRT: On-Board Imagers, Online Tumor Tracking, and Imaging Dose Review Questions CHAPTER 26: Proton Beam Therapy Lecture 26 Proton Beam Therapy: Dosimetry and Treatment Planning Review Questions Answers Index Authors Faiz M Khan PhD Department of Therapeutic Radiology, University of Minnesota Hospital and Clinic, Minneapolis, MN John Gibbons PhD Medical Physics Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center Baton Rouge, Louisiana Dimitris Mihailidis PhD Radiation Oncology and Medical Physics Charleston, West Virginia Hassaan Alkhatib PhD Radiation Oncology Department Richland Memorial Hospital Columbia, South Carolina
