Basic Radiation Oncology is an all-in-one book, encompassing the essential aspects of radiation physics, radiobiology, and clinical radiation oncology. A complete section is devoted to each of these fields. In the first two sections, concepts that are crucial in radiation physics and radiobiology are reviewed in depth. The third section describes radiation treatment regimens appropriate for the main cancer sites and tumor types. The book has been designed to ensure that the reader will find it easy to use. Many "pearl boxes" are used to summarize the most information, and there are more than 350 helpful illustrations, the majority of them in color. Basic Radiation Oncology will meet the need for a practical, up-to-date, bedside-oriented radiation oncology book. It will be extremely useful for residents, fellows, and clinicians in the fields of radiation, medical, and surgical oncology, as well as for medical students, physicians, and medical physicists with an interest in clinical oncology.

Editorial Reviews

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."
