For those in the field, just out of curiosity, who are the well-known Medical Physicists?

I know Faiz Khan is one of the most renowned. His textbooks are really outstanding.

Yeah. His textbooks are like what Griffiths or maybe Jackson are in E&M. He's also done a lot in the field.

Probably the best place to start would be the AAPM Coolidge Award winners. There you'll see the likes of:
John R. Cunningham
William R. Hendee
F. H. Attix
Faiz M. Khan
Ervin B. Podgorsak
Dave W.O. Rogers
... to name a few.

Other big names off the top of my head include:
T. Rock Mackie
David Jaffray
Marcel van Herk
Jake Van Dyk

(I'm probably biassed towards the Canadians).
