Probably the best introductory text on physics of Radiation Therapy This book from Medical Physics Publishing store does a very good job at introducing the reader to the major physics concepts of Radiation Oncology. Very logical presentation and easy to follow. More in-depth technical details can be looked up in other texts on the subject.
