Khan's Lectures: Handbook of the Physics of Radiation Therapy provides a digest of the material contained in the Physics of Radiation Therapy.

Lectures are presented somewhat similar to a PowerPoint format, discussing key points of individual chapters. Selected diagrams from the textbook are used to initiate the discussion. New illustrations are used, wherever needed, to enhance the understanding of important concepts. Discussion is condensed and often bulleted. Theoretical details are referred to the textbook and the cited literature. A problem set (practice questions) is provided at the end of each chapter topic.

Key Features:

--20-30 practice questions (a mix of problems and multiple choice questions) are provided at the end of each chapter, with answer keys, hints, and explanations for each question at the end of the book
--4-color diagrams (new as well as from the primary text)
--Good complement to Physics of Radiation Therapy
