    ISBN: OCLC Number: Notes: "Handbooks of medical physics"--Preface. Description: 74 pages: illustrations: Other Titles. The IAEA has published a handbook on radiation oncology physics, which is aimed at students and teachers involved in professional training programmes, providing a broad overview of the knowledge required. As a complement to this publication, a set of slides following closely the material in the book has been developed as well.

    The Q Book - The Physics of Radiotherapy X-Rays: Problems and Solutions Author: Peter Metcalfe, Tomas Kron and Peter Hoban ISBN: ISBN Description of the book "Khan's The Physics of Radiation Therapy": Expand your understanding of the physics and practical clinical applications of advanced radiation therapy technologies with Khan's The Physics of Radiation Therapy, 5th edition, the book that set the standard in the field.

    Even though the handbook has been primarily targeted for medical physics students, it will useful for biophysics students with special papers in radiation biophysics and medical biophysics, radiation oncologists and radiation therapy students, and also those engaged in radiation protection. Being a handbook and constraint on the number of pages. The Third Edition of Handbook of Evidence-Based Radiation Oncology updates and revises the previous successful editions and serves as a key reference for radiation oncology zed by body site, concise clinical chapters provide easy access to critical information. Important "pearls" of epidemiology, anatomy, pathology, and clinical presentation are highlighted.

Book Description. 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.

In this comprehensive reference, each part focuses on a major area of radiotherapy, beginning with an introduction by the editors and then subdividing into.There are two types of radiation therapy — photon radiation and particle radiation.

Photon radiation involves the use of high energy rays like X-rays and gamma rays. Gamma rays are obtained from the decay of radioactive substances such as radium and cobalt, while X .This book was written primarily for the undergraduate therapeutic radiographer, but it is hoped that medical physicists, nurses and clinical oncologists will also fi nd it useful.

Our main aims for the book were to fulfi l a current need for such a text and to produce a ‘reader-friendly’ book on radiotherapy physics and equipment.
