This practical, up-to-date, bedside-oriented radiation oncology book encompasses the essential aspects of the subject with coverage on radiation physics, radiobiology, and clinical radiation oncology. The first two sections examine concepts that are crucial in radiation physics and radiobiology. The third section describes radiation treatment regimens appropriate for the main cancer sites and tumor types.
From the reviews:"This valuable handbook begins with basic physics theory, moving to radiobiology from high-energy radiation interactions and ending with radiotherapy procedures and case management protocols in modern clinics. ... It is intended as a desk reference for radiation oncologists, physicists, and biologists, as well as medical students and fellows. Radiation oncology residents can read this book to gain an understanding of important techniques and protocols. ... This book is good for both refreshing clinical knowledge and studying for exams."
