Product Description
From background physics and biological models to the latest imaging and treatment modalities, this handbook covers all theoretical and practical aspects of radiotherapy physics and biology. The first three parts present the fundamentals of the underlying physics, radiobiology, and technology involved. The ensuing sections discuss the support requirements of external beam radiotherapy, followed by a part that explores new advances in photon and particle therapy. Subsequent sections examine brachytherapy using sealed and unsealed sources and provide the framework of radiation protection, including an appendix that describes the detailed application of UK legislation. The final part contains useful tables of both physical constants and attenuation data.
