Description:

A comprehensive textbook of radiotherapy and related radiation physics and oncology for use by all health care team members involved in the use of radiation and cytotoxic drugs in the treatment of patients with malignant disease. Best known as Walter and Miller, over the years this book has become the core text for therapeutic radiography students and an important introductory text for trainee radiologists and clinical physicists. It is divided into 2 parts: the first covers underlying principles of physics and the second part deals with radiotherapy and oncology.


Audience:
 

Radiotherapy students - radiographers, technicians or trainee radiologists.
Introduction for medical students and medical physicists.


Table of contents:
