Pavel Dvorak is a medical physicist with several years' experience in managerial clinical positions. Within medical physics, he has worked in education, research, and clinical practice in public and private health institutions in the Czech Republic, Austria, and the United Kingdom. His speciality is implementing novel techniques and technologies, creating and managing efficient workflows, and problem solving in radiotherapy.
This is a well-structured book! Nothing else to expect from an excellent author on the subject of programming. Pavel Dvorak Ph.D.is a Czech medical physicist who had worked at various places in Austria and the United Kingdom and who summarizes in this book his enormous amount of knowledge to work with MatLab (R) scripts related to clinical radiotherapy physics that he collected for more than 10 years. The additional web-based resources to the book add up to >900MB as ZIP-file including DICOM sample data files. In the book are MatLab (R) scripts presented in great detail, that are useful for medical physicists in radiotherapy with ambitions to dig into and/or handle the data themselves for research or quality assurance purpose (clinical use is declined for liability reasons) as well as for students with interests in getting to know clinical radiotherapy physics from the computational side of it. The book starts with lists of acronyms and abbreviations and definition of terms that each are briefly explained, so a newcomer to this field is not lost by the use of special acronyms or terms later in the text. The subsequent text is divided into 10 chapters, starting with a chapter on the basics of MatLab (R)...Each chapter starts with a list of the intended learning outcomes that will be covered in the following. The literature referenced (not much, but better than nothing!) is also listed at the end of each chapter. This way the chapters could be possibly used as stand-alone modules, e.g.as an instructional text for an inverted-classroom teaching concept of a course....This is a well-structured compendium of in great detail explained useful scripts to be used in the commercial MatLab (R) scripting environment. -Prof. Dr. Markus Buchgeister, Beuth Hochschule fur Technik Berlin, in The European Federation of Organizations for Medical Physics Bulletin (Spring 2019) This book provides a dummy for beginner's guide to using
