This superbly organized textbook " Principles and Practices of Clinical Physics & Dosimetry " covers the basic treatment planning concepts which are defined and explained in detail. Following the definition and explanation, the concepts are applied in clinical situations. The detailed step-by-step dose calculation methods and the examples of manual dose distribution planning would especially benefit dosimetrist trainees, radiation therapy students and junior physicists. The comprehensive atlas of dose distribution of every site in the human body would serve as a good reference source for dosimetrists, physicists, radiation oncologists, residents, radiation therapists, and treatment planning system developers. In addition, the dosimetric problems would provide additional practice in problem solving. Furthermore, there are considerable interests in a textbook of dose distribution atlas of every site in the human body. This is such a textbook. This is an invaluable and essential reference for practical overview of standard clinical dosimetry and comprehensive step-by-step/detailed dosimetry set-ups and reviewing all the anatomy sites pertaining to clinical/physics dosimetry dose computation. This textbook should be incorporated in clinical dosimetry field as a teaching guide and complete resource for hands on dosimetry and effective study guide for dosimetrists, radiation oncologists, medical physicists, and radiation therapists. Also, it is an excellent study guide resource for board preparation exams.
