I would assume The Physics of Radiation Therapy by Kahn.

yes it is and its crap for our purposes. But necessary crap. use it as a back up to the stanton intro to rad physics. you'll need it to fill in gaps but the stanton book is a great starter. At least we dont need johns and cunningham anymore.

I have been looking all over for these Miller notes and no one has them. How can I get a hold of them? I take the physics/bio boards next summer.

Thanks!

there are. you can get old raphex exams (from medical physics) and there are other q and a books. check out https://www.medicalphysics.org/cgi-bin/htmlos.exe/004199.1.649101535000012831 specifically and http://www.medicalphysics.org/cgi-bin/start.exe/apps/medicalphysics/medphystart.html in general

also for radiobio GET THE MILLER NOTES!

i dont know if miller still does his reviews in which case you'd have to get them from someone kind enough to share them at their residency program.

Would anyone who has a copy of the Miller notes be willing to make a copy? I sit for the boards next year, and I have heard they would be helpful to have.

Thanks.
