Scintillation Dosimetry (Imaging in Medical Diagnosis and Therapy), 1ed

|

Scintillation Dosimetry delivers a comprehensive introduction to plastic scintillation dosimetry, covering everything from basic radiation dosimetry concepts to plastic scintillating fiber optics. Comprised of chapters authored by leading experts in the medical physics community, the book:

  • Discusses a broad range of technical implementations, from point source dosimetry scaling to 3D-volumetric and 4D-scintillation dosimetry
  • Addresses a wide scope of clinical applications, from machine quality assurance to small-field and in vivo dosimetry
  • Examines related optical techniques, such as optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) or Čerenkov luminescence

Thus, Scintillation Dosimetry provides an authoritative reference for detailed, state-of-the-art information on plastic scintillation dosimetry and its use in the field of radiation dosimetry.

Review

“… fills an important gap in the field of detection. The text is comprehensive, focused, and clearly assembled. Medical physicists will find this an important addition to their reference libraries.”
―Paul M. DeLuca, Jr., Emeritus Provost and Professor, Department of Medical Physics, University of Wisconsin, Madison, USA

“This book, edited by the scintillation dosimetry gurus Sam Beddar and Luc Beaulieu, is a very timely and comprehensive contribution to the understanding and advancement of scintillation dosimetry applications. It will be of tremendous use to anyone touching, teaching, or researching scintillation dosimeters.”
―Jacob (Jake) Van Dyk, Professor Emeritus, Western University, London, Ontario, Canada

“… successfully carries the reader from basic principles to advanced medical physics applications. … brings a new understanding of a blossoming field and will become a cornerstone for future advances in scintillation dosimetry.”
―Kari Tanderup, PhD, Department of Clinical Medicine and Department of Oncology, Aarhus University, Denmark

“Excellent source for not only organic scintillator dosimetry fundamentals, but also its application to radiation oncology dosimetry. I have particularly enjoyed the comparisons with other detector systems. I would recommend [this book] not only to those medical physicists interested in the use of scintillator detectors, but also to those that can be updated in dose measurements for beam characterization, pretreatment verifications, and in vivo dosimetry both in external beam radiotherapy and brachytherapy.”
―Núria Jornet, PhD, Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau, Barcelona, Spain

“I welcome an exciting new book in this eminent series; [a book] on the timely topic of scintillation dosimetry. The book covers basic principles and a wide range of applications that many will find of great interest.”
―Frank Verhaegen, Professor and Head of Clinical Physics Research, MAASTRO Clinic, Maastricht, Netherlands
