Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Luis A Medina, B.S.(University of Texas Health Sciences Center at San Antonio)
Description: This book, which presents the proceedings of the 5th Mexican Symposium in Medical Physics, provides insight into the efforts, work, and maturation of research by the Mexican medical physics community.
Purpose: The purpose is to show that this symposium is a forum for scientific exchange between the Mexican medical physics community working in clinical applications and basic research. With this book, the authors also want to consolidate the position of this symposium as the official scientific meeting of the Mexican Medical Physics Division. This book supports and validates the author's objectives.
Audience: This book is written for students, practitioners, technologists, and scientists interested in the field of medical physics and biomedical engineering. The authors are credible authorities.
Features: It principally focuses on magnetic resonance imaging and dosimetric applications in radiotherapy based on Monte Carlo simulations. Probably, the best of this book is that it shows the work and maturation of the Mexican medical community.
Assessment: The book highlights the research carried out in Mexico and how fast the field is growing both in terms of quantity and quality. This review was prepared by Luis A. Medina and Gary D. Fullerton, PhD.
