Description

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 Cerenkov 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.

About Author

Sam Beddar, PhD, is a tenured professor in the Division of Radiation Oncology, University of Texas (UT) MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, USA; professeur adjoint in the Departement de Physique, Genie Physique et Optique, Universite Laval, Quebec City, Quebec, Canada; and adjunct professor in the Department of Medical Physics, University of Wisconsin School of Medicine, Madison, Wisconsin, USA. He is also the chief of clinical research and service chief of gastrointestinal service in the Department of Radiation Physics at the UT MD Anderson Cancer Center. His research interests include scintillation dosimetry, intraoperative radiation therapy, four-dimensional computerized tomography, four-dimensional magnetic resonance imaging techniques for radiation therapy, and prompt gamma imaging for proton therapy. He has served as a mentor for many graduate students, postdoctoral research fellows, and clinical residents. Dr. Beddar has published more than 140 scientific papers and book chapters, and served as a reviewer for National Institutes of Health (NIH) study section review panels. Dr. Beddar has been principal investigator, co-investigator, and/or project leader on NIH R01, SBIR phase I, SBIR phase II, P01, R21, R43, R44, and T32 grants, and numerous industrial grants. He has served as an associate editor for Medical Physics, section editor for the Journal of Applied Clinical Medical Physics, and reviewer for numerous scientific journals, including the International Journal of Radiation Oncology, Biology, Physics, and Physics in Medicine and Biology. Luc Beaulieu, PhD, is a professor in the Department of Physics and director of the Graduate Medical Physics Program at Universite Laval, Quebec City, Quebec, Canada (part of Canada's top 10 research universities), as well as a medical physicist and head of the Medical Physics Research Group in the Department of Radiation Oncology, Centre Hospitalier Universitaire de Quebec, Quebec City, Canada. He is the recipient of numerous awards and has organized many international conferences. Dr. Beaulieu has been the author or coauthor of more than 185 articles published in refereed journals. He has served as president of the Canadian Organization of Medical Physicists and is an active member of the American Association of Physicists in Medicine, American Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology, European Society for Radiotherapy and Oncology, and American Brachytherapy Society. Dr. Beaulieu's research interests include image-guided brachytherapy, Monte Carlo dose calculation methods, and detector development.
