Medical Physics Publishing (MPP) was founded in 1985 by Dr. John Cameron, professor emeritus of the University of Wisconsin-Madison and a visionary in the medical physics field. MPP’s purpose is to provide affordable books in medical physics and related fields. It is a nonprofit, tax-exempt membership organization. MPP’s books are written by and for physicists, residents, radiologists, and technologists. MPP’s specific objective for its publications is primarily educational and scientific. MPP is unique in that the publisher also distributes its publications to ensure they are readily available to readers. MPP is partnered with other nonprofits in the medical physics field to further their missions as well. In 1999, MPP became the official distributor and publisher of books and reports for The American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM). MPP also publishes works for the Health Physics Society and the Radiological and Medical Physics Society of New York (RAMPS, Inc.).
Since 1994, MPP has sent us 39 books in the specialty of Medical Physics, with just over half of those books sent since 2012. During that time, 21 titles have been reviewed.
