Jul 15,  · This book is an updated successor to The Physics of Radiotherapy X-Rays from Linear Accelerators published in This new volume includes a significant amount of new material, including new chapters on electrons in radiotherapy and IMRT, IGRT, and tomotherapy, which have become key developments in radiation therapy.4/5(4). Principles of Radiologic Physics and Dosimetry James A. Purdy A solid foundation in the principles of radiologic physics, dosimetry, and treatment planning is essential for the practice of modern-day radiation oncology. This chapter discusses the basic concepts in radiation physics, radiation therapy treatment machines, and the dosimetry parameters used for photon external beam treatment. AAPM’s TG protocol for clinical reference dosimetry of high-energy photon and electron beams is an improved and significantly revised protocol. It is strongly recommended by the Radiologic Physics Center and the Therapy Committee of the AAPM. The objective of this SDEP is to fully understand and implement all aspects of the TG protocol.
