Description:

RAPHEX practice examinations have been helping residents study for their board exams for over 15 years. In 1994 we compiled 9 years of exams, from 1984 through 1992. All questions from these years were reviewed, checked for accuracy, and questions and answers were updated to be accurate as of May 1994. Questions were then organized according to topic, so that residents can concentrate on areas they need the most help in. This book is: * Well-organized for teaching or self-study * Organized by specific subject areas * Answers to questions include methods and rationale This book also includes the general physics sections of the Raphex exams. Contents include: Photon Dosimetry * Definitions * Timer Settings, Monitor Units for SSD Set Up * Timer Settings, Monitor Units for SAD Set Up * Dose at d2 From Dose at d1 for SSD Set Up * Dose at d2 From Dose at d1 for SAD Set Up * Dose Variation Along Axis for Parallel Opposed Fields * Variations in PDD With SSD * Equivalent Square * Wedges * Use of Wedges in Treatment Plans * Rotation * Surface Dose * Field Junctions * Depth Dose Variation With Energy * Features of Isodose Curves * Integral Dose * Variation in Dose Rate With Distance * Bolus, Compensators, Beam Spoilers * Isodose Distributions * Superficial X-Rays * CT in Treatment Planning * Inhomogeneity Corrections * Irregular Field Calculations * "Similar Triangle" Geometry Problems * SSD Versus SAD Set Up * Miscellaneous Electron Dosimetry * Properties of Electron Beams * Junctions * Factors Affecting Output & PDD * Monitor Unit Calculation * Shielding; Bolus * Treatment Planning Brachytherapy * Decay of Activity * Dose Rates Around Line & Point Sources * Total Dose from Permanent Implants * Units * 3-D Coordinate Reconstruction * Systems of Implant Calculation * Advantages of Cesium-137 Over Radium * Shielding 187 * Properties & Use of Clinical Radionuclides * Strontium Eye Applicators * Equilibrium * Gynecological Applicators * Miscellaneous Treatment Machines * Linear Accelerators * Cobalt-60 Teletherapy Units * Superficial X-Ray Units * NRC Regulations * Neutron Production in Linacs * Other Treatment Modalities * Quality Assurance * Calibration * Head Leakage Dose Measurement * Beam Films * Patient Monitoring * Units & Definitions * Photon & Electron Interactions * Dose Outside the Treatment Field Radiation Protection * Therapy Room Shielding * Quality Factor * Management of Radioactive Patients * Measurement of Occupational Dose Equivalent * Dose Equivalent Limits * Regulations * Detectors * Miscellaneous Good Luck On You
