About this book

Introduction

This study guide will be a reliable support and easy-to-use source of information for students in the fields of dosimetry, physics, radiation oncology, and therapy as they progress through the educational levels in preparation for board examinations. The theoretical and practical knowledge gained by students on previous courses or in clinical settings is reinforced by means of almost 1200 questions and accompanying detailed analytical answers.

In order to cater for all students, the questions are arranged according to three levels of difficulty. They will meet the needs of those hoping to pass the Medical Dosimetrist Certification Board (MDCB) exam, candidates taking Medical Physics written exams (parts I and II), Radiation Oncology residents, and American Board of Radiology candidates or those taking equivalent exams elsewhere in the world.

The study guide is broken down into different subject areas, with provision of multiple questions and answers on each subject. In addition, the mathematical and physics questions include brief explanations of how the student can solve each problem. At the end of the guide, three practice tests are included with the same number of questions as are found in the MDCB exam.  These tests will help students to test their knowledge and improve their test-taking speed.
