Handbook of Radiotherapy Physics (2nd Ed.) Theory and Practice, Second Edition, Volume I

Langue : Anglais

Coordonnateurs : Mayles Philip, Nahum Alan, Rosenwald Jean-Claude

From background physics and biological models to the latest imaging and treatment modalities, the Handbook of Radiotherapy Physics: Theory and Practice covers all theoretical and practical aspects of radiotherapy physics.

Fully updated throughout, this comprehensive reference explores the major areas of radiotherapy. 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, such as dose measurements, properties of clinical beams, patient dose computation, treatment planning, and quality assurance, followed by a part that explores exciting new advances that include developments 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 handy tables of both physical constants and attenuation data.

With contributions from renowned specialists, this second edition of the key reference text in the field provides essential theoretical and practical knowledge for medical physicists, researchers, radiation oncologists, and radiation technologists.
