Product description

Review

From the reviews of the fifth edition:

“This book Provides a unique approach to covering the physics of radiation oncology. … I would highly recommend this book for radiation oncology trainees who are seeking to understand the physics background to clinical radiation oncology treatments and for physics trainees who are seeking to understand how basic physics applies to clinical application. I would also recommend this book for any radiation oncology professional looking to update their knowledge on either a particular radiotherapy technique or clinical treatment site.” (Lois Holloway, Australasian Physical & Engineering Sciences in Medicine, Vol. 36, 2013)

From the Back Cover

This well-received book, now in its fifth edition, is unique in providing a detailed description of the technological basis of radiation therapy. Another novel feature is the collaborative writing of the chapters by North American and European authors. This considerably broadens the book’s perspective and increases its applicability in daily practice throughout the world. The book is divided into two sections. The first covers basic concepts in treatment planning, including essential physics and biological principles related to time-dose-fractionation, and explains the various technological approaches to radiation therapy, such as intensity-modulated radiation therapy, tomotherapy, stereotactic radiotherapy, and high and low dose rate brachytherapy. Issues relating to quality assurance, technology assessment, and cost-benefit analysis are also reviewed. The second part of the book discusses in depth the practical clinical applications of the different radiation therapy techniques in a wide range of cancer sites. All of the chapters have been written by leaders in the field. This book will serve to instruct and acquaint teachers, students, and practitioners in the various fields of oncology with the basic technological factors and approaches in radiation therapy.
