Radiation Physics

Introduction to Radiological Physics and Radiation Dosimetry

1st Edition by Frank Herbert Attix

OMP Review: A math heavy explanation of radiation's interactions with matter and how radiation is measured. This is a required first semester graduate text for most radiation physics programs.

Radiation Detection and Measurement

4th Edition by Glenn F. Knoll

OMP Review: Knoll's radiation detection and measurement is a practical guide to measurement techniques and technologies. By the time you finish it, you will know way more about ionization chambers than you ever thought possible.

Radiation Physics for Medical Physicists

3rd Edition by Ervin B. Podgorsak

OMP Review: A comprehensive overview of medical physics ranging from radiation theory and nuclear decay up to the operation of modern linear accelerators and and dosimetry techniques.

Nuclear Physics: Principles and Applications

1st Edition byJohn Lilley

OMP Review: Covers theory of nuclear transitions and decay. An excellent text for health physicists or medical physicists interested in industry and power production.

Therapeutic Medical Physics

Khan’s The Physics of Radiation Therapy

6th Edition by John P. Gibbons

OMP Review: Kahn's physics of radiation therapy is the gold standard introduction to the field of radiation therapy. If you own only one oncology physics text, this should be it.

A Primer on Theory and Operation of Linear Accelerators in Radiation Therapy

3rd Edition by C.J. KarzmarkRobert J. Morton and James Lamb

OMP Review: Our recommended text for students looking for a deeper dive into the theory and operation of a modern linear accelerator.

Radiation Therapy Planning

2nd Edition by Gunilla Bentel

OMP Review: Although the book focuses on 3D planning techniques rather than modern IMRT/VMAT planning, Bentel's radiation therapy planning remains relevant today. This book covers all you will ever want to know about MU calculation, field design, couch kicks, collimator rotations, and field matching.

Khan's Treatment Planning in Radiation Oncology

4th Edition by Faiz M. Khan, John P. Gibbons and Paul W. Sperduto

OMP Review: This is OMP managing editor Max's favorite radiation oncology text. The book covers modern treatment techniques including treatment planning system operation, inverse planning (IMRT/VMAT), electron planning, proton therapy and modern image guidance techniques. It also provides disease specific information for a variety of treatment sites at a level appropriate for a physicist or other non-oncologist staff.

Medical Imaging

The Essential Physics of Medical Imaging

4th Edition by  Jerrold T. BushbergJ. Anthony Seibert, Edwin M. Leidholdt Jr. and John M. Boone

OMP Review: Looking for a single textbook that covers radiography, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, ultrasound, and nuclear imaging? This is it!

Essentials of Radiographic Physics and Imaging

3rd Edition by James Johnston and Terri L. Fauber

OMP Review: Less in depth but more accessible than Bushberg's Essential Physics of Medical Imaging. This is the recommended text as part of the ASRT curriculum.

Nuclear Medicine

Physics in Nuclear Medicine

4th Edition by  Simon R. CherryJames A. Sorenson and Michael E. Phelps

OMP Review: Discusses current nuclear medicine technologies including PET and SPECT as well as the creation and use of radiopharmaceuticals.

Essentials of Nuclear Medicine Physics and Instrumentation

3rd Edition by Rachel A. PowsnerMatthew R. Palmer and Edward R. Powsner

OMP Review: Clear and concise covering essentially the same materials as Physics in Nuclear Medicine but at a lower price point.

Health Physics and Radiation Safety

Introduction to Health Physics

5th Edition by Thomas E Johnson

OMP Review: A well laid out and approachable text covering health physics and radiation safety topics. Working through the questions is great board preparation.
