The Medical Physics Data Book is a collection of physical and chemical data useful in medical physics. The information has been extracted from other published sources. The handbook is divided into five sections: General Physics, Nuclear Medicine, Diagnostic Radiology, Radiation Therapy, and Non-ionizing Radiation.

The work was carried out by Thomas Padikal with support from members of the Medical Physics Data Group* of the American Association of Physicists in Medicine and Sherman Fivozinsky of the National Bureau of Standards. This compilation is meant to serve as a handy reference to the numerical data needed by the practicing medical physicist. 

Members of the Medical Physics Data Group: Thomas Padikal, Ph.D., Gary Barnes, Ph.D., Gerald Cohen, Ph.D., Michael Flynn, Ph.D., James Deye, Ph.D., James Kereiakes, Ph.D., Stephen Thomas, Ph.D., Guy Simmons, Ph.D., Robert Loevinger, Ph.D., Leland Kirkland, Ph.D., Richard Granke, M.S., Andrew Bukovitz, M.S., Robert Anger, Ph.D. and Avtar Ahuja, Ph.D.
