Description:

The Physics of Conformal Radiotherapy provides a thorough overview of conformal radiotherapy and biological modelling. It develops the 3-D techniques in radiation therapy covered in: The Physics of Three Dimensional Radiation Therapy by Webb. It includes three dimensional treatment planning, optimisation, with careful evaluation of photon multileaf collimation, proton therapy, transit dosimetry, intensity-modulation techniques and assesses biological modelling. It is a carefully written, authoritative account of the physics and methodology underlying current practive in three dimensional radiation therapy. These two volumes provide an invaluable teaching guide and reference for all medical physicists and radiation oncologists / therapists using conformal radiotherapy. COLOR="#ff0000">The table content includes:Developments and controversies in three-dimensional treatment planning. Methods to create a 2-D modulation of fluence (intensity) across a radiation field. Megavoltage portal imaging, Transit dosimetry and tissue compensators. The multileaf collimator in clinical practice. Converting 3D dose to biological outcomes TCP and NTCP. Progress in proton radiotherapy. Image formation, utilisation, display, the role of 3-D, and the CT-simulator.

 

Readership:

Postgraduate MSc students in radiation science or medical physics and radiological physics students (US).

 

Trade Reviews:

"... excellent discussion on medical imaging and computerized treatment optimization ... good overview of developments in biological models and processes ... good perspective on the role of proton therapy and source of the facilities ... excellent background, guidelines and extensive critical evaluations on the practicality of every item covered ... an excellent update on advances in technology related to conformal radiotherapy. I would highly recommend it to medical physicists, radiation oncologists and manufactuers interested in the cutting-edge technological developments in the field of radiation oncology". Medical Physics 1997

"For any centre considering 3D CRT ... this book is a useful source of information". RAD Review

"authoritative ... describes the physics and methodology of conformal radiotherapy ... useful to both experienced and novice medical physicists and radiotherapists" ASLIB Book Guide

"...a useful introduction and review of a number of developing areas in conformal radiotherapy, providing valuable explanations of the theories behind the state of the art equipmen
