There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. This is a very short little review of linac design and operation as used for radiation therapy, focused mainly on Varian machines. I recommend it as refresher material only.

If you want to have a detailed understanding of the actual physics behind microwave linear accelerators then you will need to look elsewhere. There is probably limear material here to help you construct a brief lecture on microwave linacs suitable for giving to interested health staff, but probably not suitable as a singular reference for giving a lecture to physicist or engineers.

Advances in linear accelerator design for radiotherapy.

I think it serves its purpose so I give it four stars. It would have earned five had it gone into more detail about safety interlocks and the associated electronics. This is an excellent book for the basics of linear accelerator design.

I am using it to study for my board exams and found kazmark to be very useful. My problem is that the book arrived with two parallel indentations across the top of the front cover and some dirt stains on the back cover. This book did not get to me looking new, which is disappointing since I paid for a “new” book. One person found this helpful. Is basic but interesting, I like it for new students in the radiotherapy area, like radiotherapy technicians.


I am physicist but i like accelerahor. This is a good summary of the basic functions of the main components karzmmark a linac. It is a bit dated in that it published inbut it covers the basics. See all 5 reviews.
