Series in Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering

About the Series

This series is a leading international book series and the official book series of the International Organization for Medical Physics (IOMP). Three of the world’s leading academics in the field—Kwan-Hoong Ng, Russell Ritenour, and Slavik Tabakov—serve as Series Editors, curating the series and carefully selecting the highest quality publications for inclusion. The series describes the applications of physical sciences, engineering, and mathematics in medicine and clinical research, meeting the need for up-to-date texts in this rapidly developing field. Books in the series range in level from upper-level undergraduate and graduate textbooks to practical handbooks and advanced expositions of current research. First established in the 1980s, the series contains books by some of the leading experts in medical physics and biomedical engineering. Titles covering the latest advances in the field are published every year.

If you are interested in writing or editing a book for the series, we would be delighted to hear from you. Please contact Rebecca Davies, Editor for Physics books, at [email protected], or contact any of the Series Editors. Proposal guidelines can be accessed at
