Description:

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 specifically for actual daily clinical attention. 

This book is highly recommended for residents and other professionals in radiation therapy.
