Description:

Practical Radiotherapy introduces the reader to the physics and equipment that is central to radiotherapy practice.

The early section of the book deals with the essential physics and mathematics of radiation beams with chapters on atomic and applied laws of physics, X-ray production, radiation dosimetry and X-ray interactions with matter.

Each of the key pieces of radiotherapy department equipment is described in detail and further sections embrace all aspects of the therapeutic radiographer’s work including: imaging systems, verification and immobilisation, legislation, radionuclide imaging and brachytherapy.

Based on the most up-to-date scientific information in radiotherapy, Pracatical Radiotherapy is written by an experienced team of practitioners and teachers who present a difficult and dry subject in a reader-friendly manner, covering all of the required core information.

This second edition has been extensively revised and is fully up to date with key developments in equipment and practice, namely: stereotacic radiosurgery, CT SIM and SIM CT, portal imaging, MLC and HDR brachytherapy.


Features

• Covers the required core information in a single volume

• Reader-friendly style and format

• Self-assessment and further reading at the end of each chapter

• All of the contributors are well known teachers in the field
