3-D Conformal and Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy: Physics & Clinical Applications in radiation therapy provides a comprehensive overview on the physics & clinical applications of 3-D CRT and IMRT. It covers full range of detailed topics and cutting edge information on recent clinical application of 3-D CRT and IMRT treatment planning. This book presents the physics and clinical information you need to implement and practice 3-D conformal and intensity modulated radiation therapy techniques and their applications in your radiation oncology center. It includes step-by-step descriptions of methods necessary for practicing full 3-D CRT and IMRT using precise imaging techniques for tumor localization, targeting, and treatment planning. This book on 3-D CRT and IMRT describes clinical and biological plan evaluation and various imaging methods in the technical implementation and the clinical aspects of 3-D CRT and IMRT treatment planning. This is an invaluable and essential reference for radiation oncologists, medical physicists, dosimetrists, treatment planning system developers, and other professionals who need in-depth information about the physics and clinical implementation and practice of 3-D conformal and intensity modulated radiation therapy.
A Practical Guide to 3-D Planning and Conformal Radiation Therapy in radiation oncology covers the information you need to implement 3-D treatment planning and conformal radiation therapy techniques in your radiation oncology center. It includes step-by-step descriptions of methods necessary for implementing full 3-D for precise tumor localization, targeting, and treatment planning.A Practical Guide to 3-D Planning and Conformal Radiation Therapy describes both the technical implementation and the clinical treatment aspects of 3-D planning.
This book is essential for radiation oncologists, medical physicists, dosimetrists, treatment planning system developers, and other professionals who need in-depth information about the implementation of 3-D planning and conformal radiation therapy.
Monitor Unit Calculations for External Photon and Electron Beams in radiation oncology covers the information you need for implementing the formalism of Monitor Unit Dose Calculations. The main objective of these practical methods is to enable the physicists/doimetrists to perform monitor unit dose calculations using these protocols within their radiation oncology department.
Biological Models and Their Applications in Radiation Oncology
This book presents the most widely used biophysical models for fractionated external beam radiation therapy and brachytherapy. The main equations for each model are derived and presented together with extensive clinical examples designed to help show how the models are used in daily clinical practice. Each model is examined, the main critical and weak points of each model are discussed, and some of the mathematics behind the more complicated models are explained. The book is intended specificaly for actual daily clinical attention. This book is highly recommended for residents, radiation oncologists, radiation biologists, radiobiologists, and other professionals in radiation therapy.
The Invisible Passenger: Radiation Risks for People Who Fly Radiation exposure while flying is an issue most of us never think about. Until now, there was no information on this topic available to flight crew members, corporate flyers, or any other member of the general public - the people who most need to know.
A Practical Guide to CT Simulation. Provides all the information you need to implement CT simulation in your radiation oncology center. Includes step-by-step descriptions of methods for implementing this new modality for precise tumor localization and targeting.
Medical CT and Ultrasound: Current Technology and Applications. Proceedings of the AAPM 1995 Summer School. Up-to-date information about these crucial imaging modalities.
The Theory and Practice of Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy. IMRT is a new modality with great potential. This is the first book providing a "hands on" approach to applying IMRT in your clinical setting.
Topics in Dosimetry & Treatment Planning for Neutron Capture Therapy. The proceedings of an MIT international workshop on macro- and microdosimetry and treatment planning for BNCT.
