9780199573356: Physics for Clinical Oncology (Radiotherapy in Practice)

Trainees in oncology learn about ionising radiation, but to understand it fully they must also understand the physics relevant to its use in therapy. This is the first book written specifically for the oncology and radiation team. It begins with basic concepts and then explores the principles and practice of physics as it relates to radiotherapy, including discussion of specific types of therapy.

ABOUT THE SERIES:
Radiotherapy remains the major non-surgical treatment modality for the management of malignant disease. It is based on the application of the principles of applied physics, radiobiology, and tumour biology to clinical practice. Each volume in this series takes the reader through the basic principles of the use of ionising radiation and then develops this by individual sites. This series of practical handbooks are aimed at physicians both training and practising in radiotherapy, as well as medical physicists, dosimetrists, radiographers and senior nurses.

About the Author:

Edited by Amen Sibtain a Consultant Clinical Oncologist in the Department of Radiotherapy/Oncology at St Bartholomew's Hospital, London, UK; Andrew Morgan the Head of Radiotherapy Physics at the The Beacon Centre, Musgrove Park Hospital in Taunton, Somerset, UK, and Niall MacDougall of the Radiotherapy Physics Department at St Bartholomew's Hospital in London, UK.

Review:

Throughout, the presentation is straightforward and conversational in tone. This is a handbook, not a detailed textbook, so while in-depth detailed presentations are omitted, there is quite a breadth of coverage. This handbook could be indispensible for a trainee oncologist, and will likely find wide readership among practicing radiologists. Andrew Resnick, Cleveland State University, Contemporary Science Physics for Clinical Oncology combines the expertise of physicists and clinical oncologists making the scientific discipline of physics clinically relevant, and accessible. Anticancer Research Excellent information resource. Explains the basic physics in clear terms to give the reader a firm grasp of the essentials before going onto more complex topics. Very well laid out. Great value for money. Amazon Customer Reviews ...essential reading for those studying for the FRCR diploma, or those wishing to reacquaint themselves with radiation physics. Oncology News, May 2013
