Editors: Maria F. Chan, Ph.D. (Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York, NY, US)
Book Description:
- Provides unique dosimetry for MR-guided high intensity ultrasound treatment, gold nanoparticle-enhanced radiotherapy, photodynamic therapy, thermal imaging in Brachytherapy, MR-guided radiotherapy, proton beam treatment, and high-definition end-to-end patient-specific dose verification
- Offers clinical applications for all varieties of modern radiation detectors, and evolving dosimetry techniques including innovative calorimetry, TLD, One-scan film dosimetry, transmission detectors, real-time EPID dosimetry, best feasible DVH planning, 3D printing, 5D planning and delivery, as well as machine learning

This book provides a comprehensive collection of the newly emerging treatment modalities, covering high intensity ultrasound treatment, photodynamic therapy, MR-guided treatment machines, nanoparticle-enhanced radiotherapy, and proton beam therapy. The invited expert authors cover a wide range of the latest advancements and developments in dosimetry techniques as well as their clinical implications, including calorimetry, radiochromic film, transmission detectors, real-time portal dosimetry, TLD, thermal imaging dosimetry, 3D dosimetry, best feasible DVH planning, 5D planning and delivery, 3D printing, as well as machine learning in medical dosimetry. This book will bring the reader up-to-date with the state of the art in radiation dosimetry and best clinical practices using such advanced detectors. (Nova Medicine and Health)
